Mexico’s Election

I generally avoid dipping my toe into the politics of other countries for the simple reason that I don’t believe that foreigners understand the context well enough to form an intelligent opinion. However, I did want to ask one question about the results of Mexico’s election, given its historic nature.

Given the high levels of corruption and violence which her predecessor and sponsor, AMLO, struggled with, how likely do you think it is that the newly-elected president will be able to pursue her stated goals effectively?

Mexico has the highest homicide rate of any major country in the world, indeed, all of the ten countries with the highest homicide rates are located in the northern half of the Western Hemisphere.
