Private security guards yesterday guarded the gates of one of the halls of the Hilton Colon Hotel, in the north of Guayaquil. Journalists, camera operators, and photographers were waiting sitting on the stairs until their entry was authorized. After 15 minutes the communication managers of the Creando Oportunidades (CREO) party appeared and let them in.
Four people were analyzing the numbers of several documents with scanners and computers in an anteroom. From the top of a carpeted staircase, more than two hundred people can be observed, divided into twenty tables, typing frantically and comparing documents. They are part of the electoral center that CREO installed since last week and worked until yesterday to keep track of the minutes issued by 91% of the National Vote Boards (JRV), where they had delegates.
They are the ones in charge of entering the corresponding data of each minute like province, city, and enclosure to the computer system. Likewise, they compare the information with the figures published on the website of the National Electoral Council (CNE) and in the case of detecting any inconsistencies, report it.
