On his last visit, Lenin Moreno announced his candidacy for the Presidency of Ecuador. Moreno will return in July to the country and Alianza Pais will make its decision public on August 10.
A positive balance for the former vice president: he stabilized his relationship with Rafael Correa; He teamed with Jorge Glas, to the point that they toured areas affected by the earthquake and even took photographs with their wives. The three public figures positioned themselves before public opinion, as the protagonists of 2017. And each one advanced their pawns in this chess game.
On May 24, Correa took for granted he will not present the Report to the Nation in 2017 and the fact that he has successors. Lenin Moreno anchored the sensation, of having resolved conflicts with Correa and to accept Jorge Glas as his running mate.
Glas played the role of being a disciplined man (because right now the polls do not give him a favorable image): he folded his knees before Moreno but ensured the position number two in an internal struggle that included competitors such as Vinicio Alvarado and Jose Serrano.
