Mexico's new president faces staunch divide

Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador will soon be sworn in as the new Mexican president and, although he won in a landslide, not everyone is excited.

    Mexicans are expecting the start of major changes when their new president is inaugurated in a few hours.

    Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, often known as AMLO, is promising to clean up corruption and crack down on drug cartels.

    But his early actions, including cancelling a $13bn airport project, have spooked both the business sector and those who worry he will gather power to himself, rather than relying on Mexico's institutions.
