Mexico challenger pushes to annul vote result

Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador calls for rallies against alleged fraud during presidential election.

    Nearly three weeks after Mexico's presidential election, the candidate who came in second place is still refusing to admit defeat.

    Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador continues to call for mass rallies to challenge the official result which gave Enrique Pena Nieto the most votes.

    Pena Nieto's Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) has admitted that it spent $5m on gift cards for party workers, but it maintains that they were never meant to be given to voters.
