Mexico's Pena Nieto: 'No return to the past' from PRI

Mexico's presumed President-elect Enrique Pena Nieto has thanked voters for giving his PRI party another chance and has vowed no return to the past.

With almost all votes counted, Mr Pena Nieto is about six points ahead of his nearest rival, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who has not admitted defeat.

The PRI (Institutional Revolutionary Party) governed Mexico for 71 years but has been out of power since 2000.
