Leftist candidate sweeps to victory in Mexico, marking major shift

Leftist candidate sweeps to victory in Mexico, marking major shift

Mexico's new president will have to deal with his USA counterpart, President Donald Trump, along with his threats to pull out of the North American Free Trade Agreement and his calls for the construction of a border wall. He said he would seek to stay in a version of the North American Free Trade Agreement (Nafta) that was good for Mexico.

The United States, which works closely with Mexican law enforcement in its fight against drug cartels, was tired of a softening of Mexico's security policies. We have a border of more than 3,000 kilometres, more than 12 million Mexicans live in the United States.

"We are not going to fight".

Bolivia's leftist President Evo Morales tweeted: "We are sure that his government will write a new page on Latin America's dignity and sovereignty". "I think he's going to try to help us with the border".

The leftist Lopez Obrador won a landslide victory on Sunday, besting a four-candidate field with more than 53 percent of the vote in preliminary results.

Governing party candidate José Antonio Meade, Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) 14.8 percent.

Lopez Obrador's approach to security is one of the first signs of how he is breaking from the mold of the typical Mexican presidency. Driver is the author of "More or Less Dead: Feminicide, Haunting, and the Ethics of Representation in Mexico".

Lopez Obrador previously vowed to throw the energy reform out but now says contracts merely will be reviewed for any illegalities.

During his meeting with Pena Nieto, the first since Sunday's election, Lopez Obrador said they had agreed to work jointly on talks with the United States and Canada to reconstruct NAFTA, maintaining the current negotiating team while also including Lopez Obrador's picks for handling future talks.

Lopez Obrador struck a conciliatory tone in an acceptance speech Sunday night, saying he would pursue fiscal discipline and respect the independence of Mexico's central bank. "But it has to be made clear that he has to deliver what he promises and not become like the rest", he said.

Lopez Obrador won thanks to overwhelming anger at the status quo and his success at presenting himself as an agent of change. In the event that President Trump continues his harmful and hurtful rhetoric and policies against Mexico and Mexicans, AMLO will have no choice but to take a strong stance.

According to the latest census figures, there are a little more than 26,000 people of Mexican descent living in Alaska. But "independent candidacies are here to stay in Mexico", Janine Otalora Malassis, president of the electoral court, said on Friday. But it does represent a major shift - representing the largest margin of victory by any candidate in Mexican history.

Compared with his predecessors, Lopez Obrador is likely to be more focused on domestic economic issues than on settling trade issues with the United States, O'Neil said. "They shouldn't dare commit a fraud, because if they do they will meet the devil", said Yeidckol Polevnsky, president of Lopez Obrador's Morena party.

"We won't do the dirty work of any foreign government", AMLO said, referring to detentions of Central American migrants trying to reach the U.S. border.

He said Mexico's "very strong" immigration laws could be used to help keep illegal immigrants away from the US border.

Lopez Obrador told Televisa that he will respect the current team of negotiators, and let them continue representing Mexico until he takes office December 1.
