Mexico`s old ruling party falls short of majority

Electoral authorities say Mexico`s old ruling party and its allies have fallen just short of a majority in both houses of Congress.



Mexico City: Electoral authorities say Mexico`s old ruling party and its allies have fallen just short of a majority in both houses of Congress.

The situation may give small parties leverage to offer their swing votes.

The Institutional Revolutionary Party has been declared the winner of the July 1 presidential elections. Known as the PRI, it is allied with the smaller Green and New Alliance parties.

The Federal Electoral Institute projected on Tuesday that the three parties together would have 250 seats in the 500-seat lower house, one short of a majority.
The PRI and allies would have 62 seats in the Senate, three short of a majority in the 128-seat body.

The figures are projections. The final totals will be announced by a federal electoral court.
