Mexican presidential front-runner Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Wednesday sent an open letter to investors, seeking to allay concerns he could damage the economy, and promising to run an austere, zero-deficit government.
In the letter published in financial newspaper El Financiero, Lopez Obrador sought to strike a conciliatory tone with investors who have been concerned by his threats to cancel lucrative energy and airport construction contracts.
“We’re not rebels without a cause and we keep our word. We know how to carry out our commitments. Don’t be frightened,” wrote the former Mexico City mayor, who is now making his third presidential bid.
