Mexican Presidential Election: too close to call.
The result of the Mexican Presidential Election is too close to call. The Federal Election Institute made a quick count of 7,636 polling stations, chosen to represent the country at large. The margin of error is within 0.3% and the result is within that figure. Hence no preliminary result will be announced. The country will have to wait until the full count has been completed - and that does not even begin until Wednesday.

At Congressional level, the TV exit polls show that the right-wing PAN has about 35% of the vote for the Chamber of Deputies. The PRD came second with about 32% and the PRI trailed behind on 22%.

Even assuming that the streets do not erupt into violence, the country is not going to be governed very easily for the next six years. No party will control the Congress and the deadlock that has bedeviled Pres. Vicente Fox will continue.
