Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto's party won congressional elections on Sunday, retaining its simple majority despite protests and falling approval ratings, according to preliminary results.

The Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) is expected to win between 29.87 and 30.85 percent of the ballots, followed by the conservative National Action Party with 21.47-22.7 percent, said National Electoral Institute president Lorenzo Cordova.
