On September 5, 2006, Mexico's Federal Electoral Tribunal certified Felipe Calderon as the winner in the heavily disputed presidential election of July 2, 2006. He was declared the victor by 233,831 votes. Calderon's opponent, leftist candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, claimed that the preliminary results of the election were marred by fraud and made several legal challenges against the results.
