Beginning with early reports by independent media such as the Guardian that unveiled the extended manipulation of the electorate by the Mexican television networks in favor of Enrique Peña Nieto, the Presidential candidate of the PRI (Revolutionary Institutional Party), the entire electoral process and the polls on July 1st were marred by a wide array of fraudulent electoral practices.
