Partial recount in Mexico presidential election ordered


Electoral authorities in Mexico have announced they will recount more than half of the ballot boxes in Sunday's presidential poll after finding inconsistencies in the vote tallies.

Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador of the leftist PRD had demanded a total recount after initial results put him in second place.

He accused leading candidate Enrique Pena Nieto of breaking electoral rules. Mr Pena Nieto of the PRI denied allegations his party had bought votes.

He told the BBC's Will Grant in Mexico City that he was "completely clear that the party acted within the law".
