Court Actions Likely to Postpone Election Results

By: Staff | Real Acapulco News - 24 January, 2011

(Chilpancingo, AN 24 January) The many complaints received in Guerrero’s Election Institute (IEEG) make it obvious that they will not all be resolved by the January 30 election day. Thus it is possible that the governorship will be decided in the courts rather than by a simple Election Board declaration. According to the head of the IEEG, "This situation is considered normal in Guerrero and should surprise no one. It should only take a couple of days, once all the election results are in, to declare the winner.” However, this assumes that the number of complaints and accusations will not increase as Election Day approaches. According to the IEEG, the results will not be official until the last pending matter is settled in the Election Court, a special tribunal of Mexico’s judicial branch.
