Court rejects election claims by Lopez Obrador

Mexico City -- Mexico's top electoral court rejected complaints about the July 
election yesterday, giving conservative candidate Felipe Calderon's party the 
largest stake in the legislature.

The electoral judges must declare a president-elect by Sept. 6 at the latest.

Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador lost the July 2 presidential vote by a hair and his 
Party of the Democratic Revolution has challenged the result, alleging fraud.

Mr. Calderon's ruling National Action Party will have 52 seats in the Senate, 
more than other parties, but still short of a majority, the electoral court 
said. Reuters
