El Chad has left the building

There will be no full recount of the Mexican Presidential election. Andrés Manuel López Obrador has lost, even if he won’t accept it, what with him calling himself the President and all:

President-elect Felipe Calderon will have some troubles to deal with, though, judging by this BBC quote:

Mr Lopez Obrador said “peaceful civic resistance” would continue and urged people to take part in a further protest on Sunday.

Supporters chanted “Vote-by-vote!” and blocked the entrance to the tribunal.

“If there is no solution, there’ll be revolution,” they shouted.

But gee, I thought PRI was the Institutional Revolutionary Party, not AMLO’s party.
