A look ahead to Mexico's presidential election

Next weekend Mexico will go to the polls to chose a new president.

The vote is being held against the background of a violent drugs war and a slowing economy.

The frontrunner, Enrique Peña Nieto, comes from the party which ruled Mexico for most of the last century, the PRI.

Opponents say the party is tainted by decades of corruption.
