Mexican election favorite not radical leftist: advisor

MEXICO CITY, June 6 (Reuters) - The economic team of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, the favorite to win Mexico’s presidential vote, has been briefing investors that he is not a radical left-winger and will fight to preserve the North American Free Trade Agreement, a top adviser said.

Carlos Urzua, who Lopez Obrador has picked to head the finance ministry if he wins the July 1 election, said he has met with more than 65 investment funds, telling them the candidate is committed to central bank independence, a free floating currency, free trade and keeping a lid on spending.
