The CNE ratified that, in the runoff held on April 11, Guillermo Lasso won the elections with 52.36 percent of votes, while Alfredo Borrero, his partner in the presidential ticket, won the vice-presidency.
In these elections, the Lasso-Borrero ticket represented the center-right CREO-Partido Social Cristiano (Social Christian Party) alliance and ran against the progressive Union por la Esperanza (Union for Hope) coalition, composed of Andres Arauz and Carlos Rabascall, who won 47.64 percent of votes.
The data were final since ‘there are no pending appeals, and all complaints submitted to the administrative and litigious headquarters have been resolved,’ the CNE plenary session clarified.
In this regard, it added that it validates the results after complying with the deadlines under the Code of Democracy for the submission of objections and contestations by political organizations, and after addressing the sentences ruled by the Litigious Electoral Tribunal.
The plenary session of the highest electoral authority claimed that the granting of credentials to the elected dignitaries will take place on May 19, and they will be sworn in on May 24, in compliance with the Constitution.
