With Widespread Support, Lopez Obrador Wins Mexico’s Presidency

But in taking that stance for his own support base, AMLO might find a historic opportunity: building bridges with Mexico's southern neighbors, and perhaps also emergent powers such as China.

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.

"There is a lot of inequality, a lot of violence in this country", said Lopez Obrador voter Hugo Carlos, 73.

Mexico's President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador says he supports reaching a deal to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement with the United States and Canada. "He's our new president", Salvador Sanchez, an 82-year-old voter reportedly said.

"We are so happy", said Lucero Robles, a Mexican painter who took to the streets on Sunday night to toast his victory.

Trump has accused Mexico of sending criminals and rapists into the United States and is nearly universally disliked in Mexico.

Mexico is now renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement - known as NAFTA - with the United States and Canada.

Lopez Obrador's coalition, which is led by his Morena party, looked like it was also on track to snag several other key posts, including at least five of the nine governor's races that were on the ballot.

Lopez Obrador plans to eschew the presidential mansion tucked into Mexico City's verdant Chapultepec park, preferring to remain at his modest home on the capital's south side and working from offices in the colonial National Palace downtown.

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

"The tendencies of the vote do not favor us, we are not the winners, that is Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who obtained the majority [of votes] in the presidential election", Meade said at a meeting with his supporters and wished good luck to Obrador.

Mexicans were voting Sunday in a potentially transformative election that could put in power a firebrand vowing to end politics and business as usual in a country tired of spiraling violence and scandal-plagued politicians.

The next president will also inherit a simmering dispute with USA counterpart Donald Trump over migration and trade, with talks to rework the North American Free Trade Agreement (Nafta) unresolved, pressuring Mexico's peso currency.

"We represent the possibility of real change", Obrador told hundreds of journalists crowded at the entrance of his polling station in Mexico City's Thalpan district.

According to a poll by Oraculus, Lopez Obrador was favored by 48.1 percent of voters.

Polls are beginning to close across much of Mexico or Sunday's presidential election.

Claudia Sheinbaum has been elected as the first woman mayor of Mexico City. He aptly cashed in on the Mexican public's anger towards Trump, who throughout the Mexican election campaign season continued to criticise Mexico's immigration policies, insist that Mexico should pay for the border wall, and fuel anti-Mexican and anti-immigrant rhetoric in the US. "All this is going to end ... we can not have a rich government and a poor people", he said.

Lopez Obrador has repeatedly promised just that, though some businesspeople have been skeptical.
