Ecuador Elections Red Hot

Ecuador Elections Red Hot

Quito, Aug 15 (Prensa Latina) Ecuador Constituent Assembly election drive turned red hot as the candidates tour neighborhoods and public markets to attract voters for the September 30 elections.

The government party Alianza Pais strategy sent its 14 candidates to visit different areas, with goals set on a political, economic, ethical, social and sovereignty revolution.

They will lead a similar drive at coastal areas to outpace the conservative Social Christian and Renovador Institucional parties that traditionally control those areas.

Organizations like Izquierda Democratica (ID) and Sociedad Patriotica (PSP) of ex President Lucio Gutierrez ready cultural and political events like a rally at Plaza del Teatro Wednesday and Friday.

Both try to recover their deteriorated image and call for changes other than those led by President Rafael Correa that calls to dismiss Congress once the Assembly is installed October 30.
