Calderon claims victory
The conservative candidate, Felipe Calderon, has claimed victory in the Mexican Presidential race. The Electoral Commission could not predict a result last night based on a quick sampling of the results in 7,636 polling stations, but now all those ballots have been counted, Calderon is ahead by just one percent over his main rival, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador. However, the full count will not take place until Wednesday, and the AMLO camp has already begun to shout foul.
