Asuncion, Apr 22 (EFE).- Opposition candidate Horacio Cartes won Paraguay's presidential election.
"This is a victory for the Republic of Paraguay because all Paraguayans have won, the party won, but the Republic of Paraguay is the winner," Cartes, of the Colorado Party, told supporters Sunday night.
Cartes's main rival, Efrain Alegre, conceded earlier in the evening.
Cartes won 45.91 percent of the vote, while Alegre garnered 36.84 percent, with 81.06 percent of the ballots counted, the national elections commission said.
