Santiago Guarderas is the mayor of Quito; signed the minutes in the Plenary Hall of the Metropolitan Council
On the night of this July 19, 2021, Santiago Guarderas, the new mayor of Quito, signed the subrogation resolution before a notary in the Metropolitan Council.
“As established by law, I will proceed to sign the resolution by means of which, in exercise of constitutional and legal powers, I assume the position of mayor of Quito,” Guarderas said.
With this, Guarderas assumes the Mayor’s Office of Quito after Judge Grimanesa Erazo decided to revoke the precautionary measures in favor of Jorge Yunda.
After the decision of the judge, the councilors met in the Municipality where Guarderas signed the resolution of the subrogation and also the request for keys to the Central Bank, already as the authority of the Capital City Council.
The session was mainly attended by councilors from the opposition bloc to Yunda, who with applause celebrated the new Mayor of the city.
