The politician went to vote an hour after the polls opened, at the Academia Cotopaxi school, located in the north-central district of the capital.

Rabascall issued statements to the press affirming that ‘beyond an electoral result, what I hope is that the country recovers normality.’

After expressing confidence in supporting his team, led by economist Andres Arauz as a candidate for president, he considered it necessary to put the electoral process in context and recalled that in order to participate in the contest, UNES had to overcome numerous obstacles.

The politician recalled that the initial option for the vice presidency from the progressivism was former president Rafael Correa, who was disqualified, and later there were attempts to prevent his participation in the elections, as well as to terminate the UNES duo and invalidate Centro Democratico, a political organization, which had enrolled them.

‘We have all the elements to think that there are risks of wanting to intervene and interfere in the electoral process,’ he said.

The vice president nominee tweeted later stating: ‘I have exercised my right to vote. I call for peace, sanity, political maturity.’

Likewise, he asserted that he expects respect for democracy and the decision of the Ecuadorians expressed at the polls during this day of voting and underlined: ‘the peace, tranquility and stability of Ecuadorian families are at stake in these elections.’
