Mexican play still a guessing game

Mexico’s energy sector and IOCs are waiting to see if the new president follows through with his anti-reform election rhetoric

On 1 December, Andrés Manuel López Obrador will take office for a six-year term as president of Mexico. After a protracted but one-sided campaign, he won a decisive victory in the 1 July polls at the head of the Morena party, which he founded, taking 53% of the vote. It's the culmination of a lifetime spent seeking Mexico's most senior office. He previously contested the presidency in 2006 and 2012. López Obrador's credentials are those of a nationalist, leftist outsider. He's also a dogged opponent of the two parties which have ruled since the return to democracy in 2000, the Institutional Revolutionary Party (known by its Spanish acronym of PRI) and the pro-business National Action Party
