Bil­lion­aire ex­presses con­cerns on can­di­date’s air­port op­po­si­tion

The Washington Times Daily - - WORLD -

MEX­ICO CITY | Mex­i­can bil­lion­aire Car­los Slim said Mon­day that he would be “con­cerned and afraid” if leftist pres­i­den­tial can­di­date An­dres Manuel Lopez Obrador wins and can­cels the New Mex­ico City air­port project.

Mr. Slim strongly de­fended the $9.2 bil­lion project, in which his com­pa­nies have won ma­jor con­tracts.

Lopez Obrador, who is the fron­trun­ner in pref­er­ence polls, has pledged to can­cel the project if he wins the July 1 pres­i­den­tial vote.
