Ecuador Assembly Elections Partial Results.

Posted by QB on October 1, 2007

The exit polls indicating that Rafael Correa will win the majority.

Quito – The government of left-wing populist President Rafael Correa was winning in Sunday’s election of a constituent assembly in Ecuador, according to an exit poll. According to the survey results issued shortly after polls closed at 2200 GMT by the institute Investigacion y Estudios, Correa’s Alianza Pais party was in line to win 15 of the 24 nationally elected seats in the 130-member assembly.

Another 100 seats were to be distributed to candidates by province, and a further six to candidates chosen by Ecuadorians living abroad. There were no exit polls as to their possible distribution.

Correa hoped for an absolute majority of 66 seats and said he would stand down if he did not obtain it.

Official results were not expected for 20 days.

Correa calls assembly vote “Victory”

Correa, a left-wing ally of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, has claimed an overwhelming majority in the 130-member assembly he says should dissolve Congress, call early elections and curtail the unstable Andean country’s political old guard.

With 54.25 percent of the votes tallied, Correa has won about 70.74 percent of the votes for the 24 national seats in the assembly. Votes for the 100 provincially assigned seats and six delegates chosen by citizens living abroad were also not complete, but showed a similar trend.

HE CALLED it the “mother of all battles” and Rafael Correa, Ecuador’s new young president, appears to have won it. According to an unofficial count of the results of an election on September 30th for a Constituent Assembly, Mr Correa’s supporters, grouped in a new outfit called Acuerdo País (“Agreement for the country”), won some 70 or more of the 130 seats. That gives the president a clear mandate to write a new constitution reflecting the “21st century socialism” he espouses.
