As of 12 noon today (7/5/2006), Andrés Manuel López Obrador, the candidate of the left is ahead in the recount. One fourth of all the electoral district tallies had been counted and this is the outcome so far:
López Obrador 36.98%
Felipe Calderón 34.39%
No trend can be established at this point. This is being shown live in Mexico’s Canal del Congreso (the equivalent of CSPAN in the U.S.).
