Eight political organizations will discuss tomorrow a mechanism to avoid irregularities in the elections of April 2.
The National Accord for Electoral Transparency already carried out activities before the first round, but its dispersion proved to be harmful, according to its members.
Now, and after what they call inconsistencies in the elections of February 19, they believe they can come together to monitor every action of the National Electoral Council (CNE).
Abdalá Bucaram Pulley, the leader of the Fuerza Ecuador party, told Daily Expreso that the agreement, of which he is a part, will re-power all its tools. “We are working on a big front that fights fraud,” he said.
Guillermo Celi, of the CREO-SUMA Alliance, said that if during the first round there was one supervisor in each polling station, now there will be two or three. He believes that control should be strengthened, especially in Guayas, Manabí and Los Ríos. The reason? Political organizations think that in these provinces there were inconsistencies.
