Lopez Obrador sworn in as Mexico president

MEXICO CITY, Dec 1, 2018 (BSS/AFP) – Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador was sworn in as Mexico’s next president Saturday, after the anti-establishment leftist won a landslide election victory promising to “transform” a country fed up with crime, poverty and corruption.

The leader, widely known by his initials, “AMLO,” begins his six-year term with strong majorities in both houses of Congress — but has caused market jitters in Latin America’s second-largest economy with a style that some see as authoritarian and radical.
