Today, the Mexican People are being asked to vote to choose a president in an election described as the bloodiest in decades.

Andreas Manuel Lopez Obrador, Mexico City’s former Mayor, who is promising to eradicate corruption from the country, is considered a favourite in the race.

If manages to win, his election victory could be seen as a historic one since he would remove the two main parties which have been governing for about a century.

Political observers say the Mexican people are anxious to remove President Enrique Pena Nieto due to the country’s economic stagnation which resulted from corruption and crime which mounted to record levels.

Andreas Manuel Lopez Obrador, known as “Amlo” began his campaign on the promise to eradicate corruption, while promising to increase pensions and wages by destroying abuses by the state, political entities and business.
