Mexico is recounting more than half the ballots that were cast during Sunday's presidential election, the Federal Electoral Institute (IFE) said on Wednesday.

Of the 143,000 ballot boxes used during Sunday's vote, 78,012 will be opened and the votes recounted, said Edmundo Jacobo, executive secretary of Mexico's Federal Electoral Institute.
