Socialist Lenin Moreno won Ecuador's presidential election, the electoral authority confirmed Tuesday, bucking the trend in Latin America to extend a decade of leftist rule in the major oil exporter.

National Electoral Council chief Pablo Pozo said on television that "irreversible official results" showed Moreno won with 51.16 percent of the vote, beating his conservative rival Guillermo Lasso, who has alleged voting fraud.
