Last Call for Ecuador Assembly

Quito, Sep 26 (Prensa Latina) Ecuadorian parties and political movements close their campaigns Wednesday with acts and gatherings in a last endeavor to attract votes prior to the Constituent Assembly elections on Sunday.

The campaign, started on August 13 and to close about midnight, provided the same opportunities for all groups, and for the first time the State financed media advertising. In addition, social and popular groups were allowed to take part in the electoral race for the Assembly.

The movements will try to attract votes of those still undecided, who account for less than 45 percent of the population.

The ruling Alianza Pais movement will hold its acts in Quito and Guayaquil, with mass meetings presided over by former minister Alberto Acosta, national candidate of that faction.

Meanwhile, the Popular Democratic Movement, the Democratic Leftwing, and Movimiento Uno announced they will close their activities in Quito, while PRIAN and the Social Christian group will do so in Guayaquil.
