The results of Sunday’s vote to decide the future of the New Mexico international Airport are pending after thousands of Mexican filed through polls across the country.
"We will respect the vote, the result, what the people think and decide,” said president-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) during a televised speech, calling the vote a democratic exercise and encouraging his countrymen to participate.
“We are doing very well, many citizens who are participating are helping me so that the decision does not depend on one man, important as it is, that depends on all citizens, that is the democracy, power comes from the people, and is instituted for their benefit. Power only makes sense and becomes a virtue when it is put at the service of others,” said AMLO.
Over a million citizens voted Sunday with a few polling stations around the country running out of ballots over the weekend.
"Whatever the decision the citizens take, tonight they will know. We will save a lot of trouble, because there will be no corruption, I guarantee it," said AMLO in a Facebook post.
The voting process transpired over the course of four days, 538 municipalities, 32 states, and closed at 6:00 pm Sunday evening.
