The National Regeneration Movement (Spanish: Movimiento Regeneración Nacional, MORENA) is a left-wing political party in Mexico.[3] Formally registered as a political party in 2014, it is led by former two-time presidential candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador.[4][5][6]


MORENA was originally founded by López Obrador as a cross-party organization supporting his candidacy for the Presidency in the 2012 general election.[7] After the election López Obrador left his former party, the Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD), and MORENA transformed from an unofficial 'movement' into a political party (with López Obrador as its leader).[8]
