Lourdes Tiban, of the Pachakutik political party, has been appointed as representative of indigenous peoples by the United Nations, she reported through her Twitter account.
Tiban, who was a presidential hopeful representing the Pachakutik party, also mentioned the current candidate for the presidency, Lenin Moreno, who also worked for the UN. “Unlike Lenin, I will do it for free and from Cotopaxi,” she wrote.
In 2013, Moreno was appointed United Nations envoy for disability and accessibility issues. In 2016, his diplomatic career received a great media coverage when it was reported that the Ecuadorian state had paid him more than one million dollars to fulfill his functions.
