Mexican president-elect meets with Fox

Sept. 7, 2006 at 11:27 AM   |   Comments

MEXCIO CITY, Mexico, Sept. 7 (UPI) -- Mexican President-elect Felipe Calderon met with President Vicente Fox to discuss the transition process, El Universal reported Thursday.

The center-right Calderon reportedly told Fox Wednesday that he was hoping for a smooth transition leading up to Dec. 1, the day he is scheduled to assume office.

However former Mexico City Mayor Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who lost to Calderon in July's election by less than 1 percent of the total vote, has continued to contest the results.

Obrador has led numerous protests in the capital and promised to create a parallel government. On Tuesday, Obrador reiterated that he would not recognize the Calderon administration.
