Own Correspondent//10:23pm, Feb 8th '21

Leftists are taking lead in the Ecuadorian Presidential Elections. Ecuadorian economist and the leftist leader of “Citizen Revolution Movement”, Andres Arauz on Sunday won a first-round victory in the country’s presidential election with a vote percentage of 31.5%. Yaku Perez who is an environmental activist and also a leader of the left wing party, Pachakutik Plurinational Unity Movement – New Country with a 20.04% of vote share.
According to the constitution of Ecuador, if any candidate succeeds to achieve a 50% or more than 50% vote in the first round he’ll be elected as the President directly after the first round or 40% total with 10 percentage points more than the runner-up to avoid the second round. So there’s no way to ignore the second round where two leftist parties will be contesting against each other. It’ll be on April 11th, when Ecuadorians will choose their President among the two leftist leaders.
