Mexico: AMLO claims legitimate victory, denounces 5 million votes bought

The Left-leaning candidate to the Mexican Presidency, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, denounced that they have evidence of some 5 million votes being bought by rival Enrique Peña Nieto (PRI), mostly by means of supermarket cards which were (often void or with just a fraction of the money promised). 

AMLO was already prevented from a legitimate victory six years ago when the reactionary PAN candidate, López Obrador, was elected by means of fraud as well. Fraud that was sanctioned by the Supreme Court however. 

The high tribunal will have to rule on the appeal before September.
