Mexico’s leftist Lopez Obrador wins largest landslide in country’s recent history

Veteran Leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has been elected president of Mexico, winning the largest landslide in his country’s recent history in a remarkable routing of what he terms “the mafia of power”.

Promising to combat corruption and drive down record crime rates, Mr Lopez Obrador captured 53 per cent of the vote, according to preliminary results – a historic victory for the party he created.

Voters decided in their millions to turn their backs on the two parties which have ruled Mexico for almost 100 years, and finally give him a chance – sending his supporters into a frenzy.

  1. “Promising to combat corruption and drive down record crime rates…”
    He’ll be having his funeral by Friday.
    “Plata o plomo”.

  2. Probably the typical politician posturing. If he was serious about getting Mexico back on track, he would request U.S. military drone assistance for taking out drug cartel personnel (pretty sure Trump would be down with that – how far can a drone fly from the U.S. / Mexico border anyway ?) on that side of the border. Trouble is, cartel members on THIS side of border would likely go full blown terrorist mode on this side of border.

    Maybe that is why legalization of some narcotics is so popular with politicians – to attempt to reduce number of illegal drug smuggling. ???
