Mexico’s new president is a leftist who has swept out the ruling party. He won, by all accounts, because Mexican citizens are tired of violence, poverty and corruption in the country. They want a new start and a clean slate. There is no guarantee Andrés Manuel López Obrador can bring about the necessary change to make the country better again. But citizens want him to try. It is a public expression of will. Obrador had better heed it during his years in office. The fear is he will take the country into the same direction as Venezuela where strongman politics rule and the country is riven by inflation. Obrador has a long list of things to fix but not the money to do it. He will have to prioritize his work and conduct careful public relations to keep citizens from revolting again. It is a difficult position to be in.
