5. BBC: Mexico awaits presidential election result

1 July 2012 Last updated at 19:35 ET Share this pageEmail Print

Mexicans are awaiting results of a presidential election dominated by the economy and war on drugs.

Thousands of police were deployed to protect the tens of millions who voted from intimidation by drug cartels at polling booths. Officials said the voting was largely peacefully.

Exit polls suggest a victory for Enrique Pena Nieto, whose PRI party ruled for decades until 2000.

His main rival is left-winger Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.

Mr Lopez Obrador, of the Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD), was the runner-up in the 2006 election. He refused to recognise the victory of serving President Felipe Calderon and led street protests afterwards.
