A total of 175 politicians have been assassinated in Mexico in the past one year, according to risk analysis company Etellekt.

A total of 175 politicians were killed from September 2017 until August 31, a time span which included the run-up to elections in July, Etellekt said on Monday.

The figure translates to 14.5 political murders each month.

In addition, at least 850 acts of aggression against politicians were registered across the country, according to Etellekt.

The violence has not abated since the elections in July, with 63 attacks on politicians, including 21 assassinations.

In a recent case, an elected mayor, who was to take office in the northern state of Chihuahua on Saturday was shot by unknown assailants on Friday.
