Katy says: Manuel Rosales has just given the weirdest speech. It started out being very non-comittal one way or another, then he said he is going to hit the streets, which made people applaud widely, but then he said he conceded defeat. He said he doesn’t believe the margin is actually as wide as the CNE is saying, but he says nonetheless he recognizes they were defeated today.
Is it just me, or was his speech confusing? In fact, confusion may have been the only way out of this tight situation.
