With the qualification of Guillermo Lasso and Alfredo Borrero , by the CREO-PSC alliance , the National Electoral Council (CNE) registers three presidential pairs until the afternoon of this Thursday, October 1 , while other groups continued to arrive to register their pre-candidates.
The electoral body did not accept the objection presented by the UNES alliance against Lasso, stating that the candidate does not incur any disability. In accordance with the Constitution and the Code of Democracy.
Likewise, the registration of the Ecuadorian Union movement , of the Washington Pesantez and Ramiro Orna binomial , was denied , because they did not present documents such as the sworn statement, the work plan, among other requirements. However, they were given two days to correct the breaches.
The same happened with the pair Andrés Aráuz and Rafael Correa (UNES) , since the acceptance of the vice-presidential candidacy was not made within the specified period.
Correa was sentenced for the crime of bribery , for which he is disqualified from running; Like the previous one, the CNE gave him two days to designate the replacement and also correct the number of the citizen ID of the applicant Aráuz.
In the last hours the binomial of SUMA, Guillermo Celi and Verónica Sevilla went to the CNE to register their candidacy; After the process, Celi said that it is time for Ecuadorians to come together to work and solve health problems, education, entrepreneurship, and the fight against corruption.
Later Gerson Almeida and Martha Cecilia Villafuerte , from the United Ecuadorian movement , registered their binomial; “We are going to make a change of mind to lift the spirit of Ecuadorians, Ecuador is not broken, we are going to make history,” said Almeida. (I)
