Read his article here: "Mexico Girds for Legal Battle as Election Yields a Near Tie."
The Post's editorial page also weighed in today, urging the two candidates to abide by the Independent Federal Election Institute's eventual declaration of a winner: "Regardless of who wins the election, mexico needs political leaders who will continue to strengthen its weak political institutions -- not just the electoral authority but the courts, prosecutors and central bank ..."
