Mexico State: A rigged election, it is now clear

Mexico State's electoral institute, Instituto Electoral del Estado de México (IEEM), responsible for arranging the upcoming elections in Mexico State, flat out refused to order the PRI-run state government to tear down more than 2,500 billboards favoring the PRI, which it is now illegal to display. The IEEM sought to wash its hands by saying it would only do so under a direct order by the federal electoral tribunal - despite the fact that it earlier apparently did order five billboards torn down for violating the law.

It is becoming clear that the criticisms launched against the IEEM by the PRD and PAN that the institute is biased toward the PRI are more than warranted.
