On July 1st, Mexico will elect a new president. Felipe Calderon's term is ending and the leading candidate is Enrique Peña Nieto of the Institutional Revolutionary Party or PRI.

The PRI has been out of power for the last 12 years, but it ruled Mexico before that for 70 years.

Some aren't happy about the resurgence, including a student movement dubbed “Yo Soy Ciento Treinta y Dos” or “I am 132.”
