Turnout figures in Venezuela's Constitutional Assembly election were manipulated by least one million votes, Smartmatic, a company which has worked with Venezuela since 2004 on its voting system, said on Wednesday.

The CEO of Smartmatic, Antonio Mugica, made the comments at a press conference in London.

The British company deplored the lack of participation in Sunday's electoral process by opposition parties, which did not provide auditors or send representatives to the Tabulation Center when the results report was issued.

Venezuelan officials say more than 40 percent of Venezuela's 20 million voters cast ballots on Sunday. However, the Opposition said the figure was only 12%.

President Nicolas Maduro, who claimed 40% of Venezuela had voted, was declared victor of the referendum.
