Leftist Obrador wins the presidential race in Mexico

Global Look Press/ZUMAPRESS/Antonio Nava

Leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has claimed victory in Mexico's presidential election, calling for reconciliation after what he called a "historic day," ABS News reports.

Lopez Obrador vows that profound change is coming, but says individual and property rights will be guaranteed. He promises respect for the autonomy of the Bank of Mexico and says his government will maintain financial and fiscal discipline.

The candidate spoke late Sunday shortly after electoral authorities announced that a quick count forecast he had won over half the votes, a remarkable mandate not seen in the country for many years.

President Enrique Pena Nieto said in a televised message to the nation that he had congratulated Lopez Obrador.
