President of Ecuador recognizes election results

In the publication on its website at 05:10 local time this Tuesday, the electoral authority shows that the "No" has more than 50 percent in the eight questions presented in the plebiscite.

The Ecuadorian electorate went to the polls last Sunday to elect local authorities, including governors, mayors, urban and rural councilors, as well as members of parish councils.

The voters of the South American country also answered "Yes" or "No" to eight questions presented in the referendum promoted by Lasso and which sought to modify the Constitution in areas related to security, institutionality, political representation and environment.

In a message to the nation offered on Monday, the president acknowledged the trend offered by the preliminary vote count, which does not favor him.

"When the people speak, it is the government's duty to analyze, understand and accept it," Lasso said.

For the president of the Confederation of Indigenous Nationalities of Ecuador (Conaie), Leonidas Iza, the "No" in the popular consultation is the triumph of the people.

The prefect re-elected by Pichincha, Paola Pabón, assured that the results of the elections mark the beginning of the recovery of the homeland.

He maintained that the triumph of his party, the Citizen Revolution, is the continuity of that wave in which Latin America demands that progressive governments can assume the crisis.
