Who is Mexico’s Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador?

Graphic News

June 29, 2018 -- Leftist presidential candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, 64, is on the brink of winning Mexico’s presidential election, having spent his political career railing against the country’s establishment.

Commonly known as AMLO, Lopez Obrador has bounced back from two presidential election defeats, two gubernatorial losses and a 2013 heart attack to defy his critics with an unshakeable faith in his ability to tackle Mexico’s ills.

Like U.S. President Donald Trump, the headstrong Lopez Obrador has been the heart and soul of his movement, and victory for him on July 1 could heighten tensions between Mexico and the United States over trade and migration if the two men clash.
