Reports Show Lopez Obrador With Landlside Win in Mexico Election

Supporters of Mexico's presidential candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador standing for the

Mexico's president-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has thanked U.S. President Donald Trump for sending a message of congratulations, and says he'll contact the U.S. leader to "reach an understanding". "It is our main economic-commercial partner", he said. All had Lopez Obrador winning more than 40 percent of the vote in the single-round race, well ahead of his rivals.

From 1996-99 he served as the national president of the PRD, and in 2000, Mr. Obrador was elected as the Mayor of Mexico City.

Mexican voters overwhelmingly backed Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador in Sunday's presidential vote, with at least 53 percent of voters casting their ballot for the leftist candidate.

United Nations deputy spokesman Farhan Haq said Monday the secretary-general "congratulates the people of Mexico for the civic exercise of participation in the largest elections that the country has celebrated". "We'll see what happens, but I really do believe it's going to be a very good one", Trump said.

Jose Antonio Meade, the presidential candidate from the governing Institutional Revolutionary Party, told Lopez Obrador at a recent debate: "You want to forgive the unforgivable". We have a border of more than 3,000 kilometres, more than 12 million Mexicans live in the United States. "We share common goals, strong people-to-people ties, and a mutually beneficial trading relationship that is the envy of the world - reflected in our joint effort to update the North American Free Trade Agreement for the 21st century", Trudeau said in a statement congratulating Lopez Obrador on his win. His next bid was thwarted too, when Enrique Peña Nieto was chosen as President in 2012. He is member of the National Regeneration Movement (MORENA) party.

Will Trump change his attitude, rhetoric or policies toward his southern neighbor now that Mexico will have a new president?

Carlos Urzua, Lopez Obrador's pick to be his finance minister when he takes office on December 1, told Reuters on Monday that the new government will aim to reform the pension system and to reduce costs at Pemex during its six-year term.

Surveys conducted by Consulta Mitofsky and Televisa forecast gubernatorial wins for allies of the Morena party in Chiapas, Morelos, Tabasco and Veracruz, and for head of government in Mexico City. He has also struck a nationalist tone on plans to boost the economy.

Tapen Sinha, a professor at Mexico's ITAM University who specializes in risk management and pension funds, said the current government spends between 20 percent and 25 percent of the federal budget on social security, and that under his calculations, that will double by 2032 if nothing is done.

Amid widespread frustrations with the status quo, all of the candidates have tried to paint themselves as the agent of real change. But Duncan also said that many people are unsure of how Lopez Obrador will be able to provide what he has promised. "I recognize his victory, I have already talked to him and wish hum success in the work for the benefit of Mexico", Anaya said.

"They will inherit the talks where they are - now at a standstill, largely given US recalcitrance to compromise with its neighbours", she said, noting that Mexico has imposed its own retaliatory tariffs and the new administration would likely follow the same approach.
