Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is one of four candidates in the race to become the 58th president of Mexico.
Promising to combat corruption and drive down record crime rates, Mr Lopez Obrador captured 53 per cent of the vote, according to preliminary results - a historic victory for the party he created.
The election was a crushing defeat for the ruling centrist Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI, which governed Mexico from 1929-2000 continually and again from 2012.
It is a major shift in Mexican politics: the PRI and PAN have governed for almost a century, and Lopez Obrador will be the country's first leftist president in recent history. Top of the agenda will be free trade negotiations and reassessing the deal to build a new Mexico City airport.
Lopez Obrador said individual and property rights would be guaranteed, promised respect for the autonomy of the Bank of Mexico and said his government will maintain financial and fiscal discipline. Leftist candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador - a known opponent to Trumppolicies - is now slated to be headed for the win. "He's our new president", Salvador Sanchez, an 82-year-old voter reportedly said.
