The Presidential candidates have started official campaigning for what has been said as the biggest election in Mexican history. Shall you bet on AMLO to win Mexico elections on July 1st? The candidate believes reaching 20 million votes is feasible.
Most of online sportsbook news in Mexico adhere to the likelihood that Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador will be Mexico’s next president. He could even enjoy a congressional majority after the July 1 vote, making it easier for the leftist front-runner to reset Mexican economic policy. But before aspiring to make a drastic change in the country, he has to beat three candidates by winning the hearts and minds of approximately 20 million voters out of 88 million eligible voters. Although the road is more difficult than many appreciate, we recommend you to take a risk and bet on AMLO to win Mexico elections.
What Do We Know About Mexico Elections So Far?
AMLO very close to become Mexico’s New President
According to online sportsbook news in Mexico, voters will elect a new president to serve a five year and ten months term, 500 members of the Chamber of Duties and 128 members of the Senate. The country’s president will be elected in a single round of voting. There is no runoff vote, so the next president will be decided on July 1st, 2018.
The importance of these elections lie in redefining the role of the government in areas such as economic, development, trade, security and energy – a prospect that terrifies markets and puts economic reforms in jeopardy. Thus let us take a look at the leading name in the scene Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.
Who Is AMLO?
Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is the former Mexico City mayor. He is making his third go at the presidency. AMLO ran and lost by a close margin in Mexico’s last two presidential elections in 2006 and 2012. This time he is running for the National Representation Movement.
Most of the spectators perceive AMLO as leftist and populist candidate. Thus his plans do not fall far from such perception. He pledges to boost social spending and review oil contracts with other countries. He also promised to review the future of NAFTA. But, what about his race against other candidates?
Bet on AMLO to Win Mexico Elections
The polls in the country demonstrate uncertain figures on election results, but they all agree that candidates have one man to catch up to: Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, known as AMLO. Recent figures in early of May show AMLO leading with around 32-52%, while the closest runners behind him are Anaya with 20-26% and Meade with 14-19%.
Yet the AMLO’s two challengers face reputation crisis just two months before the election. Meade is backed by the government that has been widely perceived as corrupt and accused of spreading lawlessness in the country. The other Ricardo Anaya Cortes is feeling the heat from federal prosecutor.
It will be hard to predict any of AMLO’s challengers to regain the trust of Mexican people in such short period before the election. Therefore we recommend placing a safe bet on AMLO to win Mexican elections. At 1xBet Sportsbook the odds are (1.27) for AMLO to claim victory, while they are (3.4) for any of his challengers to win.
