“Mr. Paredes, I have always treated you with great respect, or have not I?” “I am – since the President of the National Electoral Council President gave the results – I am the president-elect of the Ecuadorians, do not treat me as a candidate in your TV channel, please, please. When you treat me with respect, I will also answer with respect. Please, from here on, let us treat each other with mutual respect, okay?
