Mexico electoral judges reject challenge to Peña Nieto vote win
A majority of Mexico's electoral tribunal judges rejected a bid by leftist leader Andrés Manuel López Obrador to overturn Enrique Peña Nieto's victory in the July 1 presidential election, which has left the country in political limbo.
López Obrador, who was the runner-up, accused Peña Nieto and his Institutional Revolutionary Party of buying votes and money laundering to secure victory.
The court must still settle some smaller issues before Peña Nieto is officially declared president-elect and can take office in December, but the remaining issues are largely formalities.
