Enrique Peņa Nieto, 46, was born into a political family and studied business and law before launching a political career. He was as a state deputy from 2003 to 2005 before serving as the governor of the State of Mexico between 2003 and 2011. He assumed office as Mexico's president on Dec. 1, 2012, returning the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) to power after a 12 year hiatus which had followed 71 years of unbroken rule that began after the Mexican Revolution in 1929.
