Accompanied by his wife and children, his duo Jorge Glas, Vice President Lenin Moreno and collaborators, the winning candidate, from the balcony of the Palace of Government, for its quality of acting president, addressed the crowd that had gathered in Independence Square to celebrate the victory.
“May God reward you,” said Correa and ratified his known expression that “this revolution wont be stopped by anything or anyone“, while his running mate, Jorge Glas, also thanked for the great vote and said that in the next four years the government will prioritize the fight against poverty, “the real opponent to beat.”
And Vice President Lenin Moreno, meanwhile, noted that “now the legends come true at the same time they are the living, and we are currently living a legendary citizen revolution and economist Rafael Correa, as their leader “.
From the Yellow Room of the Carondelet Palace, Rafael Correa held a press conference to the national and international media. There he said “we’re just here to serve you. Anything for us, everything for you, people that has become worthy of being free.”
He did not rule out the possibility of a dialogue with the banker Guillermo Lasso, second in the polls, who, however, criticized by having “joined the opposition”. He will not do it with Lucio Gutierrez, Alvaro Noboa or Nelson Zavala, on his opinion, doing that would mean to give up on the principles and values.
