Mexican court members confirm election count

Members of Mexico's supreme electoral court the TEPJF stated on 17 August that votes had been correctly counted in the 1 July general elections, apparently rejecting the validity of complaints by civic groups and two political parties about alleged malpractice throughout the electoral process. Alejandro Luna Ramos, the magistrate presiding the Tribunal Electoral del Poder Judicial de la Federacion, said that any flaws found in recounts were for "human errors" and did not impact the elections' outcome, El Universal reported. Another court member, Flavio Galvan, said Mexican citizens had supervised the election process and counted votes. The winning party was declared to be the Institutional Revolutionary Party; if the TEPJF confirms the election definitively, its candidate Enrique Pena Nieto would become president in December 2012.
