MEXICO CITY, July 14 (Reuters) - Mexican policymakers were unanimous in their decision late last month to raise interest rates more than expected, the central bank said on Thursday.

Policymakers voted 5 to 0 to raise its key rate by half a percentage point to 4.25 percent, above the 25 basis-point hike projected by the median of analysts surveyed by Reuters.
