More than a week after the voting, it is still unknown which candidate came second in the presidential elections in Ecuador.

More than a week after the first round of the presidential elections in Ecuador, the political future of that country remains shrouded in uncertainty.

The results of the elections on Sunday, February 8, gave Andrés Arauz, a candidate related to former President Rafael Correa, the winner with 32.7% of the votes.

But that result is insufficient to declare him the winner in the first round, so he will have to be measured again at the polls on April 11.

The problem is that it is not yet known who will be his contrincante in that ballot.
