President Amlo is denied a super-majority in midterms

Global Report

Voters have denied President Andrés Manuel López Obrador a mega-majority in midterm elections, though his Morena party kept its majority in the lower house of congress with the support of a controversial ally. Voters also showed little enthusiasm for Mexico’s rightwing opposition, which remains reviled after its decisive 2018 defeat by López Obrador, who swept to power promising to curb corruption and put the poor first. The president, widely known as Amlo, welcomed the results, saying on Monday that he was “happy, happy, happy”.
