Reports Show Lopez Obrador With Landlside Win in Mexico Election

Lopez Obrador is leading in the polls Reports Show Lopez Obrador With Landlside Win in Mexico Election

Donald Trump also congratulated Lopez Obrador on his electoral win, however, the US president also said in an interview this weekend he intends to hold off on signing a new NAFTA deal until after America's fall midterm elections.

Along with his post, Sanders shared an article which calls Lopez Obrador "Mexico's 'Bernie Sanders'" and describes him as "anti-Trump".

"We don't want militarisation".

Business leaders who have openly warred with Lopez Obrador for years vowed to work with him and said fighting graft is an area where they see eye-to-eye. "There is much to be done that will benefit both the United States and Mexico".

"I think he's gonna try and help us with border", Trump told the reporters. The nationalistic approach of the 20th century gave way to servile policies that readily responded to any whims of the US State Department.

Even in recent months, despite a surge of politician killings, Lopez Obrador has ventured into drug-cartel strongholds rarely visited by Pena Nieto, such as Chilapa and Reynosa.

The future of the North American Free Trade Agreement negotiations was injected with a new dose of uncertainty with the election of a new president in Mexico on Sunday. Trump has proposed requiring automobile parts from Mexico come from plants paying workers higher wages, to discourage companies from outsourcing jobs for cheaper labor.

In an interview with the Televisa news network, Mr Lopez Obrador did not provide specifics on what an "understanding" with the Trump administration might look like, except to emphasise the need for mutual respect and cooperation between the two neighbours.

"If they do, we're going to be living in a dictatorship", Felix said in the report.

The President-elect said he would forge a new relationship with the USA "rooted in mutual respect and in defence of our migrant countrymen who work and live honestly in that country".

An official quick-count revealed that Lopez Obrador took the lead with 53-53.8% of votes, according to the electoral authority. A prominent exit poll predicted his party allies were poised to score big victories in congressional races, possibly winning absolute majorities in the Senate and the Chamber of Deputies.

Lopez Obrador - popularly known as AMLO - published a book previous year that was sharply critical of Trump, fueling concern he might prove more combative with Mexico's largest trading partner.

Furious at spiraling corruption and violence, Mexican voters unleashed a political natural disaster Sunday by electing a leftist firebrand as president and giving him a broad mandate to overthrow the political establishment and govern for the poor.

He wrote:"Congratulations to Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on becoming the next President of Mexico".

"It's worth cautioning that we still have little clarity on Amlo's economic policies", said Edward Glossop, an economist at Capital Economics. He said, "The changes will be profound, but in accordance with established order".

Candidate Jose Antonio Meade of Pena Nieto's Institutional Revolutionary Party has been running third in most polls, behind front-runner Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador of the leftist Morena party and conservative Ricardo Anaya of a right-left coalition. His next bid was thwarted too, when Enrique Peña Nieto was chosen as President in 2012.

"There will be no confiscation or expropriation of assets".

In addition to hoping to revamp the oil sector, Lopez Obrador's economic plans include promises to reform Mexico's troubled public pension system.
