Former Ecuadorian president Rafael Correa spoke about the results of the elections on April 11, in which his representative Andrés Arauz lost to the CREO-PSC candidate, Guillermo Lasso.
During the political campaign, Correa was active and at first sought to intervene, however, he was sentenced as the mediate perpetrator of the crime of aggravated passive bribery to eight years in prison and disqualification from holding public office in the Bribery case.
The former president cited the words of candidate Arauz in which he indicated that this was only a beginning.
He thanked his supporters for their support and pointed out that they believed they would win, but that their projections were wrong. He also wished Lasso luck and asked him to stop what he considers lawfare , “which destroys lives and families.”
Correa was the image of the UNES movement during the first electoral round, but this took a turn in the new political contest.
The exit polls revealed Lasso’s victory or the technical draw between the two candidates. (I)
