Mauricio Rodas, elected Mayor of Quito, received the investiture by the President of the National Electoral Council (CNE), Domingo Paredes. The ceremony was held yesterday at the Sucre Theater.
In his speech, the Mayor announced that tomorrow, at the first session of the Council he will present a project for fines reduction that apply to the `rush traffic hours and licence plate´ (Pico y Placa) system.
