Martelly to take over battered Haiti

Former singer announced preliminary winner of presidential poll, even as rival alleges fraud.

    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.
