POLL-Mexico's central bank seen holding rate at 8.25 pct on Thursday

MEXICO CITY, May 14 (Reuters) - Mexico's central bank is seen keeping its key interest rate steady on Thursday amid signs of weakness in the economy, an acceleration of inflation in April and the U.S. Federal Reserve holding rates pat, a Reuters poll showed on Tuesday.

The Bank of Mexico, or Banxico, is expected to hold the benchmark rate steady at its current 8.25 percent, the level it has been at since Dec. 20, according to 15 economists and analysts polled by Reuters. (Reporting by Noe Torres; Writing by Anthony Esposito; editing by Grant McCool)
