The observation mission of the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR for its Spanish acronym) revealed this week its report on the elections in Ecuador, which were held last February 17.
The main recommendation of the oversight was addressed to the authorities of the National Electoral Council (CNE for its Spanish acronym) to offer equity to its political participants in future “reelection contests. ”
Maria Emma Mejia argues that perhaps the CNE had trouble finding a balance for reelection in Ecuador since it is an event not seen for many years.
Mejia also noted that adjustments should also be made on issues such as the transmission of election results, the participation of political parties and movements on Election Day and the possibility of direct observation of the scrutiny of ballots.
The final report was delivered to the CNE President Domingo Paredes, who said that next year, when elections of sectional dignities are held in Ecuador, wants to “have the observer mission of UNASUR to monitor the country and witnessed if it has fully complied with the recommendations. ”
