Andrés Manuel López Obrador Overthrows Mexican Presidential Elections 2018

The 3rd time presidential candidateAndrés Manuel López Obrador completely took over the Mexican presidential elections of 2018. The victory has been ruled revolutionary as the new elected President announces his plans for the country’s future.


On Sunday, last weekend, 64-years-old López Obrador, the ex-mayor of Mexico City,won the election polls by a margin of more than 50 percent. His victory, however has more to do with the nation’s thirst for change, rather than his person.

Mexico has long been a country of turmoil and conflict, and with only two major political parties to choose from, its residents didn’t have much of a choice.

Moreover, the corruption revealed under Peña Nieto’s administration, disappointed and angered the nation. All of these factors contributed to the success of López Obradorbut also put the hopesof a nation on his shoulders.

Analysts and Critics are looking forward to what the President-elect will do and what measures he will take to resolve the overwhelming number of issues the country is facing.

In his speech following the results of the election polls, he declared that dealing with poverty and long forgotten issues will be his first priority and since half of Mexico’s population is living below the poverty line, his decisionwas appreciated.

However, that is not the end of his burdens. The new President also has drugs, smugglings, illegal immigration, gang wars, violence, homicide, education issues to deal with as well, not the least of which is his relationship with the President of United States.

López Obradorhas criticized Donald Trump on many previous occasions but upon his victory, he stated that he hopes for a better relationship.

President Trump also tweeted on Sunday evening and congratulated the new President, saying he is looking forward toimproving U.S – Mexico relationshipas well as working with him.
