On April 11, 2021, Guillermo Country Email List Lasso was elected president of Ecuador. His victory was certainly possible, but not so likely given the conditions of his participation in the contest. In the first round of the Country Email List presidential elections, Lasso had finished 13 percentage points below the winner, Andrés Arauz, a progressive candidate nominated to represent Rafael Correa's Citizen Revolution. In addition, Lasso managed to secure second place and go to the ballot with a minimum Country Email List difference of just 0.3% (equivalent to 32,000 votes out of a total of almost 9.3 million voters) over Yaku Pérez, candidate of the Unity Movement Plurinational Pachakutik, leftist political party and electoral arm of the Ecuadorian indigenous movement. In other words, Lasso Country Email List overcame a considerable difference, in a context in which everything pointed to a good part of the progressive-leaning votes received in the first round by the Pachakutik candidate going to support the progressive option Country Email List represented by Andrés Arauz. After all, Lasso embodied a very conservative orientation option in the social sphere and in favor of market liberalization Country Email List policies in the economic sphere. How, then, was the victory of a banker close to the Opus Dei faction of the Catholic Church and neoliberal rhetoric possible? In this article we do not address the broader context of political economy in which these elections are inserted. The objective is more austere: we present a structural Country Email List reading of public opinion trends and the electoral mechanics that made possible the election of Lasso as the new president of Ecuador. The first electoral round Country Email List and the limits of Correismo Until the first round, Arauz proposed a return to a past to which not even some correistas wanted to return. His proposal consisted, in short, of recovering the direction of the Correa government that Lenín Moreno had abandoned Country Email List since 2017. The message was clear: Arauz was not proposing a change and.

Assembly, the Country Email List processing of constitutional reforms, the qualification of bills and requests for pardon and amnesty. In addition, the indigenous party chairs the Economic Regime Commission, which has the power to process tax reforms that will be necessary for the Country Email List management of the government's finances within the framework of the agreement with the IMF. Pachakutik is an actor with enough power to Country Email List resist the adjustment, if that is his political will. The configuration of this scenario and that of the leading role of social movements in the potential opposition to the government on a national scale will have a fundamental element in the next elections in the Conaie, where the leading role of Leónidas Iza will once again come into question. Yaku Pérez, who, as was Country Email List anticipated before the April elections, could also contest the presidency of the organization, has separated from Pachakutik .by the latter's agreements with Lasso's party, warning that there was fraud in the first round, claiming to be a "third way" and Country Email List clarifying that it does not withdraw from the organizations of the movement (Conaie and the Confederation of Peoples Country Email List of the Kichwa Nationality of the Ecuador), but of electoral politics. His speech in this resignation, already out of the race, had clearer lines of opposition to the "neoliberal right" than those outlined in his campaign. If Correismo in the Legislature Country Email List and the indigenous movement in the mobilizations were fundamental against the Moreno government, then the question arises as to what will be the capacity of the Citizen Revolution to influence the legislative game, with little presence in the Country Email List directive and in the presidencies of key commissions, and what will be the place of Conaie to radiate discursive line, now that its political Country Email List arm has agreed with CREO to take power in the Assembly and have the most relevant spaces in it. If everything traveled and acted so far by the left-wing party
