On Wednesday, the poll carried out last week in the cities of Quito and Guayaquil was released, indicating that only 9.16 percent of those interviewed consider the president’s work to be good.
This is the lowest level of approval of the president since the beginning of his administration in May 2021, when according to the same pollster he had an approval of 74 percent, largely supported by the vaccination campaign against Covid-19.
Those numbers fell sharply due to economic and insecurity problems, failure to fulfill his promises and allegations of alleged links to corruption and the Albanian mafia through his brother-in-law Danilo Carrera.
Lasso has three months left in office after he himself decreed the cross death and thus anticipated the general elections and dissolved the Legislative while he was involved in an impeachment trial that could lead to his removal.
Ecuador will return to the polls on October 15, after last Sunday none of the eight presidential candidates obtained the necessary votes to win in a single round.
The candidate of the Citizen Revolution (RC), Luisa Gonzalez, and Daniel Noboa, of the National Democratic Action (ADN) alliance, formed by the parties “People, Equality and Democracy” (PID) and “Ethical Revolutionary and Democratic Green Movement” (Mover), will go to the ballot.
