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.
But the court ruled early Tuesday in a 4-3 vote that Rodriguez was not given a sufficient opportunity to contest signatures. It said he should be added immediately since the official campaign period began nearly two weeks ago.
