RIO DE JANEIRO, April 3. /TASS/. Lenin Boltaire Moreno Garces, the candidate for presidency nominated by Ecuador’s ruling Alianza Pais party and a former Vice-President of Ecuador, has received the majority of voted in the runoff presidential election, suggests the turnout from the polls the National Electoral Council published on Sunday.
Upon the results of processing of 92.35% ballots, Moreno secured the support of 51.05% voters while his contender, former banker Guillermo Lasso nominated by Movimiento CREO got 48.95% votes.
In the meantime, many supporters of the opposition reject the official results. Several hundred of Lasso’s supporters organized a picket by the southern section of the National Electoral Council’s building in Quito, while the Ecuadorans who voted for Moreno held their own rally in front of the northern wall of the compound.
Earlier on Sunday, exit polls produced a very mixed picture of the results and did not make it possible to establish who of the two candidates was heading for victory. At some point, both Moreno and Lasso claimed each of them had become president.
Moreno will have inauguration on May 24 and will stay in the office for the next four years.
