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.
