Ecuador Closes Election Campaign.

Posted by QB on October 12, 2006

Quito, Oct 12 (Prensa Latina) Thursday marks the end of campaign for the presidential elections in Ecuador with 13 candidates scouring the provinces for more votes.

Contrary to his closest rivals Alvaro Noboa (Renovador Institucional) and Cynthia Viteri (Social Christian), Rafael Correa (Alianza Pais) is heading to Quito.

Again, millionaire Noboa proclaimed defense of the poor, and in the South of this country donated a computer and two wheel chairs and invoked God, something the Church has rejected.

Despite his tie in second place with ex Vice President Leon Roldos, he promised to beat his contenders.

Correa, whom the polls give the lead, forecast a win and requested support to win in the first round, adding that if there is a runoff on Nov 26 he would win again.

He has been target of attacks by the other candidates because he does not represent any political party and has lashed against old policies and called for radical reforms.

Viteri, the only woman in the presidential race, plans to close her campaign in Los Ríos and Guayaquil.

She favors free trade and leads non stop attacks against Correa without good results.

Election Commission President Xavier Cazar said there were no opportunities for fraud and promised predictions three hours after vote closing and an iron first against destabilization attempts.
