Mexican President Elect, Enrique Pena Nieto, will be sworn into office on Saturday in Mexico City. After the ceremony, he'll deliver an address to the country and then meet with a small group of foreign leaders, including Vice President Joe Biden

Mexicans are hopeful that Pena Nieto will be able to boost the economy and reduce drug related violence. Both goals could be achieved if the nation ends its war on the drug cartels.
