Mexico To Do A Recount Of Votes
After preliminary results showed that Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) candidate, Enrique Pena Nieto was winning with more than 38 percent of the vote,his opponent, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador refused to concede and demanded a recount. This was to be expected since the PRI's seven decade rule this last century, was fraught with vote-rigging and buying allegations.
Election officials do not expect the results to significantly change. However, Edmundo Jacobo, executive secretary of the IFE said that this was "an exercise in openness and transparency."
