Andrés Manuel López Obrador won the election this week in Mexico rather easily, receiving the highest percentage of votes in more than fifty years. López Obrador is part of the National Regeneration Movement, a political party that formed in 2014. He ran against opponents from parties that have been winning elections for almost one hundred years!

Nicknamed AMLO, López Obrador promises to rid Mexico of its corruption and help the poor. The former mayor of Mexico City now has to deliver on those promises, and the world is waiting to see what he can do for his country.
