MEXICO CITY Nov 7 (Reuters) - Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto revoked a contract for a multi-billion dollar high-speed rail link from a Chinese-led consortium after its uncontested bid raised complaints, the government said late Thursday.

The government will hold a new auction for the contract, the communications and transport ministry said in a statement, after lawmakers accused the government of favoring the group led by China Railway Construction Corp Ltd.

The link is due to connect Mexico City with the central city of Queretaro. (Reporting by Michael O'Boyle)
