The fifth year of Enrique Peña Nieto’s presidency has been one of the most relevant due to the many political forces at play in the country.

During interviews with different media outlets, Peña Nieto said that he will retire from politics at the end of his term.

One of the most challenging parts of the year for Peña Nieto was the increase in gas prices which led to a series of protests, riots and fuel thefts across the country.

As far as accomplishments, the Senate approved the creation of the Public Participation Council (CPC) as part of the National Anti-Corruption System (SNA) and the capture of former governors Javier Duarte de Ochoa of Veracruz and Tomás Yarrington Ruvalcaba of Tamaulipas.

Peña Nieto said he is a proud Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) president and that he is not focusing on his possible successor just yet, but he did say that this person should be someone with a clear vision of where they want to steer the country and have an honest, clean and prestigious record.

In a break with the past, Peña Nieto has started referencing political figures like Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) who’s future vision for the country stands in complete contrast with his own.

Peña Nieto’s sixth and final year comes with many challenges such as renegotiating the North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with the United States and Canada and elections around the country at both the federal and state level.

President Peña Nieto will deliver his State of the Nation Address to Congress this Friday.
