The National Electoral Council (CNE) will meet today to reinstall the national ballot-hearing and totalize the results of the balloting. Sunday, the electoral authority received the preliminary results minutes from provincial and foreign polling boards.
The Foreign Special Board was the last to complete the count on Saturday night, and the boards of Carchi, Imbabura, and Pichincha, which gave way to nine recounting objections, also ordered the closure of the proceedings this weekend. Juan Pablo Pozo, head of the CNE, said that once the results are totaled, the General Secretariat will notify the political organizations that participated in the presidential runoff on April 2.
The Creo-SUMA Alliance, represented by presidential hopeful Guillermo Lasso, is waiting for this document to challenge the results. This, although last week they submitted an application for the CNE to order the verification of the vote tally sheets of 41,000 polling stations.
