MOSCOW. April 3. /TASS/. Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, who has been staying inside the building of Ecuadorean embassy in London since June 2012, has commented on the results of Sunday's presidential election in Ecuador and the demand by opposition candidate, Guillermo Lasso, that he withdraw from the embassy.
In the course of the presidential race, Lasso, a former banker, commented on the situation around Assange saying the people of Ecuador had paid a price it should not have paid and he would revise the decision on granting asylum to Assange on the Ecuadorean territory in case of his arrival at power.
"We will tell senior Assange cordially to withdraw from the ambassador of Ecuador and seek to do so within the first 30 days (...) after my inauguration," Lasso said.
Assange retorted to him in Twitter on Sunday reports said the candidate of Ecuador’s ruling Alianza Pais party, former Vice President Lenin Moreno had won the election.
"I cordially invite Mr. Lasso to withdraw from Ecuador in the next 30 days (with or without his millions offshore)," he twittered.
