14:34, September 01, 2012

MEXICO CITY, Aug. 31 (Xinhua) -- Enrique Pena Nieto, who was declared as Mexico's president-elect, is moving to form a transitional team, calling for unity amid opposition supporters protest.

"It is time to look forward and to start to build and work together," Nieto said in a broadcast speech after accepting Friday a certificate from the nation's Supreme Electoral Tribunal awarding him victory.

"Within days I will publish the names of my transition team. I want to make sure the transition will be orderly and transparent," said the president-elect from Mexico's Institutional Revolution Party (PRI).

Mexico's Supreme Electoral Tribunal on Friday formally declared Nieto, who won 20 percent more votes than the second place candidate, as the nation's president-elect. He is set to rule the country from December 2012 to November 2018.
