Enrique Pena Nieto, who according to
preliminary official results won Sunday's presidential election,
stressed that "Mexico won" on election day.
"I'm going to honour your trust, and I'm going to deliver for all of Mexico," he said after electoral authorities pronounced him the preliminary winner.
"Our party has gotten a second chance, and we're going to honour it with results," said the candidate of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), which ruled for 71-consecutive years until 2000.
Amid fears of the PRI's history of corruption and authoritarianism, Pena Nieto said, "There's no return to the past," and pledged to practise "a new way of governing," always within the boundaries of democracy.
