But the possibilities of a resolution of the Country Email List conflict that prevents the erosion of democratic institutions. This is something that, so far, does not seem to be happening. The Pachakutik Movement's call, third in the first round last February, for Country Email List an "ideological null vote" was a heavy blow to the candidacy of Andrés Arauz, from the party of former president Rafael Correa. Arauz, more than losing against Guillermo Lasso, lost against the invalid vote.

The invalid vote and the triumph of the right in Country Email List Ecuador On April 11, 2021, Guillermo Lasso was elected president of Ecuador. His victory was certainly possible, but not so likely given the conditions of his participation in the Country Email List contest. In the first round of the presidential elections, Lasso had finished 13 percentage points below the winner, Andrés Arauz, a progressive candidate nominated to represent Rafael Correa's Citizen Revolution. In addition, Lasso managed to secure second place and go to the ballot with a minimum Country Email List difference of just 0.3% (equivalent to 32,000 votes out of a total of almost 9.3 million voters) over. Yaku Pérez, candidate of the Unity Movement Country Email List, leftist political party and electoral arm of the Ecuadorian indigenous movement. In other words, Lasso overcame a considerable difference, in a context in which everything pointed Country Email List to a good part of the progressive-leaning votes received in the first round by the Pachakutik candidate going to support the progressive option represented by Andrés Arauz. After all, Lasso embodied a Country Email List very conservative orientation option in the social sphere and in favor of market liberalization policies in the economic sphere.
