PRI Wins Mexican Elections

Voters in Mexico have elected Enrique Pena Nieto, the candidate of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) to the Presidency and may will give the party control of both houses of the Mexican Congress.

This marks a major comeback for the party that ruled Mexico for over seventy years before losing power in 2000. In 2006 things were so bad that they came in third but this time around they seem to have won a comfortable victory.

The question now is whether they can govern and avoid the corruption of the past or if they will return to the days of old and be quickly tossed out again.
