MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico's Supreme Court on Friday elected a new president with justices narrowly backing a career judge over another candidate who had worked for decades as a lawyer.
After more than 30 inconclusive rounds of voting, justices voted 6-4 to elect Luis Maria Aguilar, who was nominated to the high court by former President Felipe Calderon in 2009, over Arturo Zaldivar. Both are currently justices on the court.
