The numerical results of the elections of February 19 would constitute a fractioned National Assembly for the next legislative period 2017-2021, in which no political force would achieve an absolute majority.
This represents half plus one of the total members of the Assembly (70).
Alianza PAIS (AP), whose presidential candidate is Lenin Moreno, would achieve 49 seats as a party and 23 in alliances in Azuay, Bolivar, Imbabura, Chimborazo, El Oro, Loja, Manabí, Santa Elena and Orellana, with groups such as the Socialist Party, the Regional Action for Equity Movement (ARE), the Regional Autonomous Movement (MAR), the 18 party in Chimborazo; the Movement Unit One, the 62 party in Orellana, and the Front of Citizen Fight.
If alliances are maintained, that political sector would occupy 73 seats of the 137 that make up the Assembly.
The CREO-SUMA alliance, which nominated Guillermo Lasso as its presidential hopeful would get 27 seats, and as independent parties, SUMA would only get one legislator and CREO two in Bolívar and Loja, respectively.
And they would achieve two representatives in Chimborazo, but each sector with different alliances SUMA-Cambio and CREO-Amauta Yuyay.
