Mexican voters to pick president and more than 18,000 other officials

Supporters of Mexico's presidential candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador at a rally at the Azteca stadium in Mexico City Reports Show Lopez Obrador With Landlside Win in Mexico Election

The pair spent part of their 2016 Christmas holiday together in Mexico, and in September Mr Lopez Obrador toured the House of Commons with the Labour leader. He is the first presidential candidate to receive more than 50 percent of the vote in more than three decades. Known by his initials, Amlo, Lopez Obrador has vowed to bring profound change to the country and fight corruption.

Meanwhile, members of the business and political elite who fiercely opposed Lopez Obrador's populist candidacy pledged to support his presidency in a loyal opposition, and the largely orderly vote in which his rivals conceded defeat gracefully - and quickly - was hailed as a win for democracy in the country.

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.

But the prospect of Lopez Obrador rattled markets leading up to the election.

Lopez Obrador told the Televisa network Monday that he will respect the current team of negotiators, and let them continue representing Mexico until he takes office December 1, noting that he wants to have information on what's being discussed and "to help as much as we can".

Reuters reported on the security plan, which Lopez Obrador sees as an alternative to Trump's border wall, last month. "I will not disappoint you and I will not betray my people", he said.

Calderon congratulated Obrador on his victory and also wished him success.

Olga Sanchez Cordero, a retired Supreme Court judge who was expected to be named interior secretary if Lopez Obrador wins, recently told Reforma newspaper that the amnesty would be a "pacification strategy" that would shield some low-level criminals who grow, use and transport narcotics.

While what he does on the domestic front will surely be important, his administration will be defined by his approach to dealing with the United States. U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted congratulations: "I look very much forward to working with him".


Lopez Obrador, a former Mexico City mayor, was greeted with rapturous cheers by supporters in the capital's Zocalo central square around midnight, while friends celebrated in his tiny hometown of Tepetitan, in the poor southern state of Tabasco.

President Donald Trump said Monday he has had a 30-minute phone call with the newly-elected leader of Mexico, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, discussing trade, border security, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the possibility of a Mexico-U.S. trade deal.

Conservative-centrist Ricardo Anaya received up to 22.8 per cent, while Jose Antonio Meade from outgoing President Enrique Pena Nieto's Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) had up to 16.3 per cent. "We are overweight local currency government bonds and the Mexican peso".

This is the first presidential election for Lopez Obrador's party, the National Regeneration Movement (MORENA), which has formed a coalition with the left-wing Labor Party and right-wing Social Encounter Party.

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

Mr Corbyn said the result was a "new beginning" for the country.

"Front-runner Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador voted early, saying 'today the people will decide between more of the same or a real change".

Lopez Obrador launched his campaign in Ciudad Juarez in tribute to its namesake Benito Juarez, a 19th century Mexican president whose exiled government resisted a French colonialist intervention from the unruly city that borders El Paso, Texas.
