The Ecuador presidential election: It's tight

One exit poll has Guillermo Lasso as winner, 53 to 47
Another exit poll has Lenín Moreno as winner, 52 to 48

Around 8pm local time (in about one hour) we should get the fast count result from the Ecuador election people, but even then you get the feeling this result is going to be contested by whoever loses and the story will run and run. Buckle up.

UPDATE: Lasso's people can (and will) cry fraud for all they want, but Moreno's got this one. 51/49. Candace and Terry have dodged a bullet and must be happy.
