MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico's top electoral court ordered Tuesday that a fifth candidate be added to the ballot for the July 1 presidential election. Jaime "El Bronco" Rodriguez, an independent candidate often seen astride a horse in the northern state of Nuevo Leon, was kept off the ballot last month by the electoral institute for not collecting enough legitimate signatures. He had argued that the institute did not allow him to timely review and challenge all of the rejected names.
