Still No Official Winner in Mexico Election

By  | 

The two leading candidates in Mexico's presidential election have declared victory. But the race is too close to call.

The official count starts Wednesday, and no winner will be declared before then.

Voters were divided between conservative Felipe Calderon, of outgoing President Vicente Fox's National Action Party, and leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.

Fox is appealing for calm.

Lopez Obrador says he'll respect the delay in declaring a winner, but his figures show he is the winner. Calderon says he, too, will respect the results, but that the official preliminary results and the exit polls indicate he is the winner.
