The supporters of the CREO party still remain outside the National Electoral Council, in the north of Quito. On Monday morning, February 20, 2017, the supporters of presidential hopeful Guillermo Lasso installed a loudspeaker in a truck to encourage more people to wait for the final results of the general election.
With flags of Ecuador and of their party, they shout slogans against the CNE and in support of their candidate from time to time. They mainly shout “second round” and “we want results.” The Vice Mayor of Quito and activist of CREO, Eduardo Del Pozo, remains in the site. For him, this kind of vigil in which they seek to defend the exit poll results and the CNE data so far, which would show a possible second round between Lenin Moreno, the candidate of the Alianza País party, and the CREO candidate, Guillermo Lasso.
For María del Carmen Espinoza, who arrived from the first hours of the morning to the CNE, her assistance does not only respond to the support of Lasso, but to a transparent process. “It’s time to stay together, now is not the time to stand apart. All those who defend democracy should be here,” she said.
