Conservative leader Felipe Calderon has won Mexico’s general election, according to a draft ruling from the country’s electoral court. If the seven person court confirms the ruling later today, Calderon will become the country’s official President. According to the first official count of the election he won by a margin of just 234 000 votes. But defeated leftwing former mayor of Mexico City Andres Manuel Lopez has claimed the vote was rigged and has said he will set up a rival government in parallel to that of Calderon.
