Another name would be added to the electoral ballot for the Mayor’s Office of Guayaquil. Francisco Jiménez is the virtual candidate for the CREO movement to Olmedo’s chair.
César Monge, national president of the political organization, said that they only await the pronouncement of the assembly of the movement to define some candidatures, among them Jiménez in Guayaquil, which he is sure will go on the side of what the CREO bases ask in the city and that is the candidacy of the now president of CREO in Guayaquil. “The popular feeling is clearly defined in places like Guayaquil. So, what happens formally (in the assembly), I’m sure it will go in line with what the structure is asking the party: in Guayaquil, Francisco Jiménez. “
The CREO assembly is scheduled for this October, tentatively in Quito.
Jiménez, a lawyer from Guayaquil, was governor of Guayas during the government of former President Rafael Correa. He belonged to the extinct Ruptura de los 25 movement of which he was a candidate for the National Assembly in the 2013 elections. His name would be added to that of Cynthia Viteri, by the Social Christian Party; to that of Jimmy Jairala, for the Democratic Center movement; and that of Bolívar Rosero, for the Patriotic Society party.
