Mexico elects a new president
TALK RADIO NEWS SERVICE
Enrique Pena Nieto is the apparent president-elect of Mexico. At, age 45, he is the new face of the PRI party, which previously kept power for seven decades through rigged elections, corruption and patronage.
PRI was credited with modernizing Mexico’s economy. But it also stifled political dissent. The party fell from power because of economic crises and corruption scandals.
Today, PRI is considered centrist and autocratic.
PRI pledges a refocus on the drug war. But during the campaign, there was hardly a mention of actually attacking drug trafficking and taking down drug cartels, but more going after the violence associated with it.
Pena Nieto promises honesty, transparency and full accounting of public funds.
