Mexico elections center on disgust with corruption, violence

Reports Show Lopez Obrador With Landlside Win in Mexico Election

How the incoming Mexican president deals with the migration policy and Mr Trump's promise to "build the wall" between the two countries will determine the future of US-Mexico relations. He won the biggest share of the vote in a Mexican presidential election since the early 1980s, giving him a strong mandate to address Mexico's domestic problems and face external challenges, such as US tariffs. He said he will seek a relationship of "friendship and respect" with the United States. Much of the popular ire has been aimed at unpopular President Enrique Pena Nieto's Institutional Revolutionary Party, whose market-oriented economic reforms have yet to benefit many Mexicans.

Mexico's Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is on the cusp of winning the presidency after the second of his two main rivals conceded defeat ahead of official results.

Lopez Obrador spoke to the crowd there around midnight, saying to loud applause: "Today one stage has ended and we are going to begin another one - we are going to transform Mexico!"

"We really aren't thinking about changing the Constitution or major laws", Urzua told Reuters news agency on Monday, insisting that his team's changes at PEMEX would mainly focus on cost-cutting.

In addition to calling President Trump "erratic and arrogant", a two-time failed presidential candidate published a book condemning Trump's plan to build a wall on the southern USA border.

With almost three-quarters of the ballots counted, Lopez Obrador had about 53 per cent of the vote - the most for any presidential candidate since 1982, a time when the Institutional Revolutionary Party was in its 71-year domination of Mexican politics and ruling party victories were a given. Ricardo Anaya is the candidate of a right-left coalition. In his first loss - by a mere 0.56 percent to conservative Felipe Calderon in 2006 - his supporters held months-long protests in Mexico City and he referred to himself as "the legitimate president".

Obrador, 64, former mayor of Mexico City, won by a landslide on July 1, dealing a crushing blow to establishment parties.

This is Lopez Obrador's third bid for the presidency and some see it as his best shot after 12 years of near-permanent campaigning.

Mexico faces many challenges and threats. But "independent candidacies are here to stay in Mexico", Janine Otalora Malassis, president of the electoral court, said on Friday.

Lopez Obrador has promised to stop corruption in Mexico's government.

Going into Monday it was unclear whether Lopez Obrador had done enough to secure the first outright majority in Congress in over 20 years, with pollsters' early estimates suggesting he was close in the lower house but farther away in the Senate. The victory came with a commanding lead for Lopez Obrador, showing a strong mandate for his policies.

Most of the murders have been of local politicians, the most frequent targets for drug cartels seeking corrupt officials they can strike alliances with.

"It's worth cautioning that we still have little clarity on Amlo's economic policies", said Edward Glossop, an economist at Capital Economics.

But Mexican attitudes towards the United States changed significantly in the 1990s.

The peso declined as much as 1.3 percent after results of the Sunday elections signaled his Morena party was set to enjoy broad support in Congress.

He contrasted the USA immigration laws with "Mexico's very strong immigration laws".
