The Federal Elections Tribunal magistrates are not refusing to answer their phones until they have reviewed all files relating to the presidential and legislative elections. Legislators, party representatives and various factions within the electorial alliances apparently are bothering the judges, who are trying to work through 359 separate complaints. That includes 169 received Friday, writes Jorge Herrera, in this morning's El Universal. In the same paper, James McKinney (writing also for the New York Times) reports Felipe Calderón, who -- if he won -- has done so by the smallest possible margin -- is saying the whole process is "unnecessary". AMLO, meanwhile, tells Jornada that a Calderón presidency will be "spurious", and, no matter what happens, he's going to continue working on his "alernative project for the nation". And... striking school administrators in Oaxaca (the teachers returned to the classroom last week) from the Asemblea Popular del Pueblo de Oaxaca, burned scenery intended for the annual Guelaguetza folk festival. I haven't checked in with my friends in Oaxaca yet, but I'm sure most of them are livid about it. More later.
