Yesterday, March 7, in Quito, the opposition candidate again referred to the situation of the militaries. He rejected the dismissal of four senior officers from the Armed Forces, including army commander-in-chief Luis Castro, who made controversial statements about the custody of the votes in the February 19 during the electoral process. “We want to raise our voice to address the officers and the troop and to tell them that you have obligations with the Ecuadorian people and not with a political party. The transparency in the process of April 2 depends on you,” he said. The candidate also sent a letter to the Organization of American States (OAS) to request the monitoring of international observers in the second round to ensure transparency.
