It seems that with an election deemed too close to call in Mexico this past week that the country has begun a recount of all votes cast. It is contended that up to 2 million votes were not counted due to inconsistencies such as poor handwriting and extraneous marks. Further, both parties and candidates are claiming their rights to victory. The initial count named Caldron the victor, however, his opponent, Obrador is demanding the recount. Both have said that they will mobilize the support of millions if their grievances are not considered. With such an influential election, one which some say will decide the stability of the country, what will Mexico do?
