Mexico’s new president has taken first steps in leading the country as a “common man.”

墨西哥新总统已采取初步措施,以“普通人”身份治国。

He says his rule marks the end of years of secrecy, high security and luxury living enjoyed by past presidents.

他说,他的统治标志着前几任总统多年来所享受的保密、高度安全和奢侈的生活结束了。

Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador was sworn in Saturday to a six-year term.

安德烈斯·曼努埃尔·洛佩斯·奥夫拉多尔周六宣誓就职,任期六年。

By Monday morning, he was already holding his first news conference.

截止到周一上午,他已经举行了他的首次新闻发布会。

Such events were extremely rare in past presidencies.

这样的事在历任总统任期中极为罕见。

Lopez Obrador told reporters that he plans to hold a press conference almost every day.

洛佩斯·奥夫拉多尔告诉记者,他计划几乎每天都举行一次新闻发布会。

He did the same as mayor of Mexico City from 2000 to 2005.

就像他在2000-2005年担任墨西哥城市长时所做的那样。

There have already been other signs of changes, too.

还有其他一些变化的迹象。

Mexico’s presidential airplane, for example, has been sent to California to be prepared for sale.

例如,墨西哥总统专机已被送往加州准备出售。

Mexico paid $368 million for the plane in 2012, just before Enrique Pena Nieto took office as president.

2012年,就在恩里克·培尼亚·涅托就任总统之前,墨西哥花3.68亿美元买下了这架飞机。

The decision to sell the costly airplane is part of the new leader’s push for austerity, or money-saving measures.

出售这架昂贵飞机的决定是新领导人推行紧缩或节省开支措施的一部分。

Lopez Obrador plans to continue flying on commercial planes in coach, the lowest priced area of seats.

洛佩斯·奥夫拉多尔计划继续乘坐商务飞机,并选择票价最低的经济舱。

He arrived at Mexico City’s National Palace Sunday in the same small, white car he used before becoming president.

He has refused the military bodyguards used by past presidents.

他拒绝了历任总统使用的军人保镖。

Instead, he travels with a small team of assistants who also provide security.

相反,他会与一小队助手前行,这些助手也可以提供安全保障。

“I feel safe, protected and supported by the Mexican people,” Lopez Obrador said.

“能受到墨西哥人民的保护和支持,我感到很安全,” 洛佩斯说。
