35 of the 66 candidates to occupy two seats of counselors at the National Electoral Council (CNE) attended to the opposition stage.
The written test began at 11:00 at the Pichincha room, in the Military Circle.
The room, guarded by police, was also attended by members of the Council for Citizen Participation.
The aspiring counselors developed 50 questions, each one with five possible answers, for which they had two hours.
On the absence of almost half of the applicants, Fernando Cedeño, head of the Council, indicated that perhaps it depends on the score they had in the merit stage.
