  • Elections conclude across Ecuador without incident despite delays due to Covid-19

    Quito, Feb 7 (EFE).- The biosecurity measures implemented to prevent super-spreader Covid-19 events at the polling places caused delays in the presidential vote in Ecuador on Sunday but they did not prevent the balloting from being carried out without any major incidents, a vote in which 16 candidates were aspiring to succeed President Lenin Moreno next May and which is expected to head to a runoff between the two top vote-getters.With the polls closing at 5 pm, election day was characterized in the country's major cities by long lines at the polling places despite the pandemic, with Ecuador having confirmed more than 258,000 coronavirus cases and where the death toll so far exceeds 15,000, counting both confirmed and probable Covid-19 fatalities.
