Mexico Presidential Election Results: Enrique Peña Nieto Not Likely to Bring Change

The party has historically been known for two main things: corruption and effective control over the government apparatus. Yesterday, Mexicans demonstrated that they’re willing to swallow the history of corruption to get some more of that control.
