Noboa´s Electoral Foul Play Exposed

Quito, Nov 17 (Prensa Latina) New accusations against presidential candidate Alvaro Noboa appears on Friday in the Ecuadorian electoral scenario, which is getting complicated just nine days ahead the November 26 runoff.

In a release, the Permanent Assembly for Human Rights (APDH) denounced that companies and the political team of the banana magnate is bankrolling the radio-TV ad Anticorruption Front against Alianza Pais runner Rafael Correa.

But, Noboa, leader of the Partido Renovador Institucional (Prian), has denied responsibility in the publicity slot.

The anticorruption group aims at discrediting the image of Correa to achieve his defeat at the second electoral round.

For example, it sponsored a slot in which Correa assures that US President George W. Bush is clumsy and later said that such pronouncement will affect Ecuadorian immigrants in that nation.

For the APDH, the dirty war financed by Prian is a crime that requires investigations and indictments of those responsible.

Besides, other bodies such Ecuador Decide and Ciudadanos por la Democracia delivered to the Civic Corruption Control Commission a copy of the denunciation against Noboa for the purchase votes.
