Mexico leader set to lose ground in crime-hit poll
BBC, 07 Jun 2021
Mexico's mid-term elections have been marred by one of its bloodiest campaigns, even in a country known for its drug cartel wars and soaring homicides.
A severed head was lobbed into a polling station and five workers were killed on the eve of the vote.
Early results suggest President Andrés Manuel López Obrador's Morena party and its allies will keep a majority in the lower house, but fall short of the two-thirds needed to approve major changes.
Many voters say the president failed to boost the economy and curb crime.
