MEXICO CITY – Mexico's four presidential candidates are squaring off in their third and final debate before the country's July 1 elections.
The debate in the colonial city of Merida centers on economic growth, poverty, health, education and technology, based on questions culled from social media.
Front-runner Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador holds a commanding lead of as much as 20 percent in some polls over his main rivals, Jose Antonio Meade of the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party and Ricardo Anaya who represents a left-right coalition.
Anaya opened the debate Tuesday with a salvo aimed at President Enrique Pena Nieto, pledging that "there will be a commission to directly investigate the president" for alleged corruption scandals.
Independent candidate Jaime Rodriguez rounds out the field.
