Gustavo Petro´s election victory is historic, says López Obrador

Mexico City, Jun 19 (Prensa Latina) Gustavo Petro´s election victory in Colombia is historic, the Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said on Sunday.

On Twitter, López Obrador posted that Colombia’s conservatives have always been tenacious. The writer José María Vargas Vila told his country´s dictators “dipped his dagger in holy water before assassinating.”

The Mexican president feels a personal satisfaction for Gustavo Petro’s election victory for his denunciation of the campaign conservatives and fascists had conducted on him and in favor of Uribism.

Just a few days ago, during his morning press briefing, López Obrador gave a boost to the progressive presidential candidate and former guerrilla by condemning he was a victim of a dirty campaign. At that time, the Mexican leader stressed Gustavo Petro was the subject of a “most unworthy” campaign with the purpose of undermining the electoral preferences that place him as favorite candidate to win this Sunday´s run-off.

I’m going to say –just for a moment- that I send a hug to Gustavo Petro from here, and do you know why I hug him? because he is facing up a most undignified and cowardly dirty war.

For years, I encourage and have faith in the people, trust in the people, in the intelligence of the people; there is nothing more than that, López Obrador stressed.
