Mexico’s conservative presidential candidate, Felipe Calderon, snatched a razor-thin election victory on Thursday, but his leftist rival vowed to fight the result in the courts and on the streets.
The Harvard-educated Calderon had an insurmountable lead with 35.87 percent of the vote and only a few dozen polling stations pending. Mexico’s Federal Electoral Institute said it would declare the winner on the basis of these overall results.
El Universal (link in Spanish) credits the expat vote for Calderón’s victory, with 57.42% of the expatriates favoring Calderón.
