Lopez Obrador demands total recount of ballots for president
At a press conference, Lopez Obrador says he can not accept the results if the authorities of IFE and electoral court determine that fraud existed in 143,000 in the polls that were installed in across Mexico.
The coalition "Progressive Movement" that postulates the presidential candidacy of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador,
formally presented to the General Council of the Federal Electoral Institute (IFE) headed by Leonardo Valdés Zurita, a request is made for inspecting and counting the total more than 143 000 boxes were installed throughout the Republic for presidential election.
accompanied by the the party leaders of the Democratic Revolution, Jesus Zambrano Grijalva, Labour Party, Alberto Anaya and Citizens Movement, Luis Aburto Walton, as well as his campaign manager, Ricardo Monreal Avila, asked his opponents calm down, be calm and not bothered by the actions it has taken in defense of the vote, recalling that this is also part of the process, which ends until the presidential election is qualified, and is also their right.
Asked about that if these actions are in violation of the "Pact of Civility" signed last week in the IFE, Lopez Obrador said that the agreement is kept, but said the firm did not mean giving up your right to dispute.
"I can not accept a result as the competent authority shall determine," he said.
What we seek-made clear-is that they are transparent because of the election through the country, the people of Mexico and democracy.
