A scandalous electoral fraud is under way to ignore the popular will expressed today at the polls. The CNE, a few minutes ago, officially gave the victory to the candidacy of Lenin Moreno with 51.07% of votes.
We DO NOT RECOGNIZE these results, they are the result of a fraudulent action. It is not possible to proclaim official results with “94% of the ballots counted” but, above all, this scrutiny has been done without transparency: the citizenship has not been able to keep track of that process because they hid the information by disabling their website. Other elements, such as the exit poll of Citizen Participation, were already raised in the previous communiqué.
In addition to not recognizing these results, we must demand that a vote-by-vote count be produced for each of the polls.
We insist on mobilizing all our forces to respect the popular will and to reject fraud.
