Mexican President-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador has announced that his government will cancel a partially built $13.3bn new airport for Mexico City.The latest announcement follows a four-day public referendum launched by López Obrador to gauge public opinion about the construction of the airport.During the referendum, the majority of the Mexican people voted down the project, which is nearly one-third complete.They supported López Obrador’s plan to keep the existing airport and construct a terminal and two runways to a military base north of Mexico City.
