Actualité - Ecuador Vote System Collapses

Quito, Oct 16 (Prensa Latina) - Ecuador's Brazilian E-VOTE rapid vote-count system collapsed at dawn Monday after 70 percent of the votes were counted, which partial count was accused of irregularities as well.

Electoral Supreme Court (TSE) member Patricio Torres confirmed E-VOTE broke its five million dollar contract commitment to deliver presidential election results on Sunday and congressional winners after midnight Sunday.

The TSE is meeting today to analyze the situation while TSE chief Javier Cazar said the 10-month planning allowed the election itself to proceed without a hitch.

However, Jimmy Jairala, spokesman for the center-rightwing PRE -- Roldosist Party, affirmed that "hackers" entered the country and carried out a digital fraud, including scanning so votes were not secret.
