Mexican voters finally got the results of yesterday's historic national elections, yielding the country's first female president. 

Mexico elects Claudia Sheinbaum as its first female president…

The two frontrunners were women: leading candidate Claudia Sheinbaum of the ruling Morena party and opposition candidate Xóchitl Gálvez. An ally of outgoing President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, Sheinbaum is a former Mexico City mayor and scientist who pledged to continue López Obrador's popular economic policies and expand student scholarship opportunities. Gálvez is a former senator and Indigenous affairs official committed to expanding welfare programs and investing in renewable energy. Both planned to extend López Obrador's popular pension program for seniors.

Overshadowing the election was Mexico's high crime rates and political violence. More than 20 local candidates have been killed since September in the lead-up to yesterday's elections, which will also decide the makeup of Mexico's Congress, eight governors, and Mexico City's mayor. The final election results are official. Now let’s see some results!…
