Ecuador Assembly Campaign Heats Up

Ecuador Assembly Campaign Heats Up

Quito, Sep 25 (Prensa Latina) With less than a week before Sunday's election, and 48 hours before the campaign ends for the 130 seats in the Constituent Assembly, Ecuadorian movements and political parties are trying hard to be recognized by the voters.

Although President Correa's political movement, Alianza Pais, leads the polls, between 34 and 45 percent of the nine million voters are undecided, so with flags and colored signs, insignias, and the groups' numbers, candidates are trying hard to attract attention.

Cars bear photographs of candidates, while signs and pamphlets abound in the cities, and organizations are putting final details on the demonstrations they will hold to end the campaign.

The goal is for people to identify the color with the group; hence banners with the color of the political tendency fly from many buildings and large houses.
