Mexicans head to polls to pick president
MEXICO CITY, July 2 (UPI) -- Millions of Mexicans headed to polling places Sunday to choose a new president to succeed President Vicente Fox.
Mexico's constitution limits the country's presidents to a single six-year term.
Fox is wrapping up years in office that saw his National Nation Party end 71-years of one-party leadership by the Institutional Revolutionary Party.
About 71 million citizens are eligible to vote over a 12-hour voting period, CNN said.
They will choose between conservative PAN Party candidate Felipe Calderon, PRI Party leader Roberto Madrazo and Andres Manual Lopez Obrador, the left-leaning, populist former mayor of Mexico City.
One thing about it, the leftist is the only candidate who seems to pose the question "Is this the best we can do?"
