Mexican President-elect Enrique Peña Nieto plans to begin a tour of Germany, Spain, Britain and France on Oct. 11, transition team officials said.
The president-elect will be making his second foreign tour since Mexico’s highest elections tribunal certified his win in the July 1 presidential election.
The 46-year-old Peña Nieto will meet with the heads of state or government in the four countries, but additional details are not yet available, transition team officials told Efe.
Peña Nieto, of the Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI, will be inaugurated on Dec. 1, opening the way for the party, which governed Mexico for seven decades, to return to power for the first time since 2000.
The president-elect will visit Germany Oct. 11-12; Spain on Oct. 15; Britain on Oct. 16; and he will wrap up his tour in France on Oct. 17.
Peña Nieto visited Guatemala, Colombia, Brazil, Chile, Argentina and Peru on a tour that started on Sept. 17.
The president-elect is expected to visit the United States in mid-November, but a date has not yet been set for the trip.
