All had Lopez Obrador winning more than 40 percent of the vote in the single-round race, well ahead of his rivals. On Saturday, the Democratic Revolution party said four of its members were killed in Mexico State, west of Mexico City, while trying to prevent hand-outs of goods by the ruling party to potential voters.

After the election, Lopez Obrador said he'll propose that his own team of experts be included in the trade talks. She is now based in Mexico City.

Candidate Jose Antonio Meade of Pena Nieto's Institutional Revolutionary Party has been running third in most polls, behind front-runner Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador of the leftist Morena party and conservative Ricardo Anaya of a right-left coalition.

"What they're saying is a lie, that if Lopez Obrador wins, he'll have a tough relationship with Trump", said Juan Carlos Ramirez, 29, a construction worker in San Diego. Lopez Obrador had been compared to Trump for his populist, nationalist rhetoric and sometimes touchy personality - as well as his past skepticism about the trade deal. We have a border of more than 3,000 kilometres, more than 12 million Mexicans live in the United States.

Haq said the U.N. chief "expresses the readiness of the United Nations to work with the new administration continuing a longstanding tradition of excellent cooperation between Mexico and the United Nations".

Josefina Serrano, 44, who rode eight hours from Sacramento on a bus organized for voters, said she voted for Lopez Obrador because she was exhausted of corruption and violence in Mexico, as well an anti-Mexican attitude in the United States.

They apparently feel confident that they're still in the running to swing a trade for the disgruntled San Antonio Spurs star. If the Lakers truly view Leonard as the piece that will land LeBron James , then a decision may be coming soon.

"The revolution of consciences has triumphed", the victor told tens of thousands of jubilant supporters who had gathered on Mexico City's central Zocalo Square.

Lopez Obrador took between 53 and 53.8 per cent of the vote.

For much of the 20th century the Mexican state promoted a brand of nationalism shaped by anti-US sentiment and as a result, Mexico remained a relatively closed country both in economic and political terms.

The left-wing Lopez Obrador, the former mayor of Mexico City, won more than half the election's votes on Sunday and will be inaugurated December 1.

It is hard to see AMLO continuing his predecessors' security policies and anti-immigration efforts on Mexico's southern border.

The victor of Sunday's presidential election doesn't need an absolute majority of the votes, just the most votes among the four candidates.

Belgium look to live up to hype against Japan
That was the first major tournament for many of us, knockout matches have a lot to do with experience and can be complicated. Belgium's second string beat England's second string in a game that no one was entirely sure they wanted to win.

But Trump's national security adviser, John Bolton, suggested that the Republican president could find common ground with Lopez Obrador, predicting "some surprising results".

Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador could also end up proving a hard diplomatic partner for United States President Donald Trump with his vow to protect immigrants if his previous comments on the US President are anything to go by.

Investors had been expecting a victory by Lopez Obrador, who had a longstanding lead in polls.

Trump stated that Mexico would pay for the border wall during his presidential campaign. "Peace and tranquility are the fruits of justice", Lopez Obrador said.

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