Electronic fraud charged in Ecuadorian election
Police have raided the office of the Brazilian company hired to speed-count the results after its system collapsed.
The general attorney's office is investigating alleged irregularities in the process, which the company, E-vote, denies.
The [vote counts] were rejected by Mr Correa - a former economy minister - who said his exit polls suggested that it was he who enjoyed a slight lead.
On Monday, some of Mr Correa's supporters gathered outside the electoral tribunal, accusing E-vote and the country's electoral authorities of fraud.
