ccording to exit polls, Mexican voters elected Enrique Peña Nieto their next president by a comfortable margin. Peña Nieto's apparent victory catapults the once longtime ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) back into power for the first time in 12 years. He beat former Mexico City Mayor Andrés Manuel López Obrador of the leftist Party of the Democratic Revoltion (PRD) and Josefina Vázquez Mota of the outgoing conservative National Action Party (PAN). Peña Nieto, whose centrist party ruled Mexico for seven decades before the 2000 election, benefitted from economic malaise and public displeasure over the PAN government's bloody war against Mexican drug cartels.
