Mexico election: López Obrador set to win as rivals concede

Left-winger Andrés Manuel López Obrador has a clear lead in the race to be Mexico's next president, exit polls say.

The former mayor of Mexico City, who was the front-runner ahead of the vote, is estimated to have polled at least 53%, one survey by Parametria said. All exit polls put him well ahead of his nearest rivals. Ruling party candidate José Antonio Meade said he accepted Mr López Obrador had won and wished him well. His Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) has dominated Mexican politics for much of the past century. The candidate for the conservative National Action Party (PAN), Ricardo Anaya, has also conceded and said he had called Mr López Obrador to congratulate him.
