Mexican electoral authorities have delayed by a week a vote on a finding that losing leftist presidential candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador's campaign had spending violations.

The spending limit for the 2012 presidential campaign was 336.1 million pesos ($26.3 million) and the probe by the Federal Election Commission found that the three parties backing Lopez Obrador had spent 370.5 million pesos ($29 million). It found winner Enrique Pena Nieto's campaign spent 241.8 million pesos ($18.9 million).

The findings, which generated outrage from Lopez Obrador's backers, are based on the party's own reports, documents which have not been made public.

The election commissioners voted 7-2 to take more time to analyze the finding by its finance investigators.
