Youtube SECRET: Thousands stage election protest in Mexico City
Demonstrators were angered by allegations that Peña Nieto's Institutional Revolutionary party (PRI) gave out groceries, pre-paid gift cards and other goods to voters before the national elections on 1 July.
Students, unionists and leftists in Mexico City carried signs reading: "Peña, how much did it cost to become president?" and "Mexico, you pawned your future for 500 pesos."
Officials estimated about 50,000 demonstrators gathered at the central Zocalo plaza.
