    Mexico’s ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) has narrowly defeated a leftist challenger in the central state of Mexico.

     

    The election is seen as a test vote ahead of next year's presidential election.

     

    The PRI has not lost in the state in 90 years, but this time it faced increasing pressure.
