Election result in Mexico still unknown

The Washington Post:

“The allegations of vote-buying undermine the narrative pushed by Peña Nieto that he belongs to a new, more honest and transparent generation that has renounced the coercion, threats and dirty tricks of its elders, “the dinosaurs” of the old PRI who delivered the vote and kept people in line.”

“If Lopez Obrador can prove that PRI engaged in serious and systematic buying and coercion of the vote, then it would call into question the validity of the results — no matter what the vote count is,” said Eric Olson, associate director of the Mexico Institute at the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington.
