Initial results suggest Mexican President Obrador survives recall vote

Initial results suggest Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has survived a referendum vote to continue his six-year term. Polls closed on Sunday evening after relatively low voter turnout, while a preliminary estimate published by the National Electoral Institute suggests at least 90 percent of Mexicans taking part in the referendum voted for him to stay in office. This is the first time in Mexico a vote has been held to decide whether the president should continue his term or leave office.
