According to the official website of the National Electoral Council (CNE for its Spanish acronym), until today at 08:00 in the morning, 89.03% of ballots (36,012 out of 40,451), for the four offices (President, Vice President, Assembly and Andean Parliament).
Paul Salazar, vice president of the CNE, said, “we cannot give a specific date (for the closure of vote counting) because it obeys a wide comprehensive analysis process.”
Discrepancy of National Assembly seats continue
The vote count to determine the opposition candidates who will occupy the remaining seats as National Assembly members remain in uncertainty, after the published differences between the quick count of Participación Ciudadana (PC) and the official data released in the web site of the National Electoral Council (CNE).
The main discrepancies remain on the voting of candidates Carlos Vera from the Partido Social Cristiano (PSC), Sylka Sanchez from the Partido Renovador Institucional Accion Nacional (PRIAN) and Ramiro Aguilar from the Sociedad Unida Más Acción movement (SUMA). According to PC, the first two would have not entered the National Assembly while the candidate of SUMA did achieve a seat.
However, official data counted until today at 08:00 in the morning (86.70%), reveal different election results:
- Carlos Vera: 609,037 (9.39% of his list)
- Sylka Sanchez: 248,640 (10.95% of her list)
- Ramiro Aguilar: 242,485 (9.62% of his list)
