    Haiti's defeated presidential candidate Mirlande Manigat says thousands of her supporters' ballots were stolen.

    Manigat accused the electoral council of falsifying the results. She now has just over a week to lodge a legal objection.

    The preliminary tally from the elections shows a landslide win for Michel Martelly.

    Sebastian Walker reports from Port-au-Prince, the Haitian capital.
