BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:51 A.M.) – With most of the ballots counted, Ecuador’s leftist candidate Lenin Moreno is the country’s president, overcoming his right-wing challenger Guillermo Lasso.

Lenin defeated former banker Guillermo Lasso, candidate for the right-wing CREO-SUMO alliance with 51.07 percent to 48.93 percent, according to results issued by the country’s National Electoral Council on Sunday night, TeleSUR reported.

Lasso has already counted for a recount of the votes because of how close it was.

Meanwhile, Argentine ex-President Cristina Kirchner, already announced on her twitter account her congratulations to Lenin.

Lenin, who has been wheelchair bound after being shot and paralyzed in 1998, has been well known for his advocacy work for people with disabilities and supporting public education, the TeleSUR report continued.

Meanwhile, Julian Assange who has been protected in the London Ecuadorian Embassy from allegations of rape, made a scathing attack against the right-wing presidency who made no secret of wanting to remove the whistle blower from the building.

Assange said on his twitter that: “I cordially invite Lasso to leave Ecuador within 30 days (with or without his tax haven millions).”
