The president Electoral Institute of the State of Mexico (IEEM), Pedro Zamudio, informed that the candidate of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), Green Ecological Party (PVEM), New Alliance Party (PANAL) and Social Encounter Party (PES) coalition, Alfredo del Mazo Maza, headed the election to Governor with 32.6% of the votes while Delfina Gómez Álvarez, from far-left National Regeneration Party (MORENA), reached 31.4%.

Third comes Juan Zepeda of left Democratic Revolution Party (PRD) and Josefina Vázquez Mota of conservative National Action Party (PAN) in fourth. Fifth is the independent candidate Teresa Castell.

Andrés Manuel López Obrador, national president of MORENA, announced yesterday in his third and last video message on his social networks that they will defend the results of the elections "vote per vote, box per box”, besides demonstrating, without violence, that the candidate Delfina Gómez won legitimately. In addition, the leader of MORENA stated that they will not accept any type of fraud and that they will fight for the democracy of the country.

In his first message, López Obrador had stated that he was in possession of results which indicated that they had won with a two-to-one proportion. In his second report, at 10 p.m., AMLO qualified the result that the electoral authority had pronounced as a "strong blow PRI style".

At 2:15 in the morning, the Preliminary Election Results Program (PREP), which had 72% of the counts computed, placed Del Mazo at the top with 32.6% of the ballots, while a Delfina Gómez had 31.4% of the votes counted.

The index of reliability of the quick count has a level of 95%, representing the results of 1,347 polling places, which means 74.1% of the sample of 1,818 polling places that is 10% of 18 thousand 605 total polling places; the final results will be disclosed next Wednesday

However, electoral counselor Gabriel Corona Armenta, at 11:00 p.m., pointed to the need for an accurate report by the quick count committee, because they detected "a bias in the information received," which coincides with the three previous exercises made in the days leading up to the election.
