Mexico has elected a new president - Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador or AMLO for short.

Amlo, who counts Jeremy Corbyn as a friend, is projected to win about 53 percent and his rivals have conceded. Under AMLO, it seems nearly impossible that Mexico will permit the direct operations of USA law enforcement agencies in Mexican territory, or allow for the same type of intelligence and information sharing that had come to prevail under the previous PAN and PRI administrations.

Exit polls in Mexico are predicting clear victories for allies of leftist presidential candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador in races for four statehouses plus the capital.

Mexico's main stock index and the peso were both down Monday, but analysts at Banco Base attributed the currency's drop to broader global movement in favour of the US dollar and speculation about USA interest rates.

Governing party candidate José Antonio Meade, Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) 14.8 percent.

In an interview with the Televisa news network, Mr Lopez Obrador did not provide specifics on what an "understanding" with the Trump administration might look like, except to emphasise the need for mutual respect and cooperation between the two neighbours.

But on Monday he was still in England , reducing his chances of returning in time for the game. In spot-kicks awarded during games, he has saved only three out of 38 and one in his last 15.

Johns Hopkins professor Christopher Sands says Lopez Obradoris is an anti-estalishment populist like Trump, but retains strong progressive values.

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

Now, Trudeau is reaching out to the new president in the hopes of maintaining a united approach with Mexico when talks do resume with the United States.

In the past, Lopez Obrador has offered criticism to the shift in United States stance on immigration and trade.

While that would make it easier for Lopez Obrador to work with Congress, the parties are expected to fall short of the two-thirds majority needed to roll back a five-year-old energy sector reform that has attracted oil majors such as Royal Dutch Shell to Mexico.

But Mexican attitudes towards the U.S. changed significantly in the 1990s.

England were not aiming for victory against Belgium - Southgate
Our objective was to qualify from the group and we have done that. It was disappointing to lose the game, but we have lost nothing". He fills you with confidence no matter what decision is made.

"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.

Peña Nieto had been highly critical of U.S. President Donald Trump over the disputed wall along the U.S. -Mexico border and other issues.

The victor of Sunday's presidential election doesn't need an absolute majority of the votes, just the most votes among the four candidates. Sound familiar? As president, he may well be, at least in terms of temperament, the Trump of south of the border.

"I have been surprised by the complacency around the win by Lopez Obrador, but there is a mindset of giving him the benefit of the doubt", Lawrence said. The president-in-waiting, whose term will begin December 1, devoted much of his speech to appealing to citizens of all stripes and seeking to reassure those who have eyed his candidacy nervously.

Trump stated that Mexico would pay for the border wall during his presidential campaign.

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

What we found was a manager who didn't want us filming, no Geoffrey, and a pretty good sale on a small selection of toys. But several of Toys "R" Us' old competitors are already eyeing to fill the void.

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