Preliminary results show that Lenin Moreno from the PAIS Alliance has a slight lead in the Ecuadorean presidential poll
A 'yes' vote in a referendum will mean Correa will not be able to join the 2021 election race. Polls show Ecuadorean President Lenin Moreno could spell the political death of his former mentor.
Ecuadorians have voted in favor of reintroducing term limits to prevent presidents from running indefinitely. The referendum vote has dealt a blow to former President Rafael Correa, who did away with term limits in 2015.
Socialist candidate Lenin Moreno appears to have won Ecuador's presidential elections, but his conservative rival is refusing to back down. Guillermo Lasso is demanding a recount, claiming the vote was marred by fraud.
Ecuador has granted citizenship to Julian Assange, who has been holed up inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London for over five years. Quito has said naturalization should provide Assange with another layer of protection.
