Claudia Sheinbaum has made history  after been elected as Mexico’s first female president by a landslide on Sunday.

Crowds of flag-waving supporters sang and danced to mariachi music in Mexico City’s main square celebrating the ruling party candidate’s victory.

In her victory speech to the cheering crowd, she said “I want to thank millions of Mexican women and men who decided to vote for us on this historic day,”

“I won’t fail you,” as she also thanked her main opposition rival Xochitl (so-chee) Galvez, who conceded defeat.

The 61-year-old former Mexico City mayor is a scientist by training, won around 58-60 percent of votes, according to preliminary official results from the National Electoral Institute.

That was more than 30 percentage points ahead of Galvez, and some 50 percentage points ahead of the only man running, long-shot centrist Jorge Alvarez Maynez.
