Mexico's leftist presidential candidate refused on Monday to accept defeat in last month's contested election after a top court rejected his fraud claims, and he vowed to fight on to overturn the result.

Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said the top electoral court had shamed Mexico earlier on Monday by upholding the July 2 election result, which gave ruling party conservative Felipe Calderon a narrow victory.
