Mexican Court Declares Calderon The Winner

The Mexican Federal Electoral Tribunal has today declared Felipe Calderon the winner in the Mexican Presidential Election, brushing aside claims of fraud by Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.

"Felipe Calderon didn't win. Fraud won," opposition supporter Francisca Ojeda said, screaming to be heard over protesters throwing trash at the court and screaming "Fraud! Fraud!"

Lopez Obrador adviser Manuel Camacho told The Associated Press that the court's recommendation "does not take into account what is actually happening in the country."

"The court is going to be questioned seriously about its decision," he said, adding: "We have the responsibility to conduct ourselves peacefully."
