Mexican president-elect to launch public peace forums in AugustBy Diego Oré MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico's president-elect, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, will begin a series of "popular consultations" next month for people to discuss his proposals to fight drug crime through negotiation and amnesties, the program coordinator said. Lopez Obrador, a leftist who won the presidency by a landslide and is scheduled to take office on Dec. 1, has suggested "transitional justice" to stem the violence resulting from 12 years of a militarized drug war. From August through November, Lopez Obrador will hold discussion forums with victims and the general public in some of Mexico's most violent cities, Loretta Ortiz, the program's coordinator, told Reuters in an interview on Wednesday night.
