A discussion with Roberto Zepeda, a visiting scholar from the National Autonomous University of Mexico.

Andrés Manuel López Obrador's victory is part of a broader power shift in Mexico.

Lorraine Rivera spoke to Roberto Zepeda, a visiting scholar from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) about how these victories could play out.
