Ecuador"s National Electoral Council (CNE) kicked off the recount of more than 1.2 million of the votes cast during the presidential election last April 2 that pitted the ruling party"s Lenin Moreno against opposition candidate Guillermo Lasso to choose the successor to President Rafael Correa.

[OP-ED]: Will Ecuador’s new president get rid of Julian Assange?

 04/14/2017 - 09:37
The incoming president has promised reform. But first Moreno needs to get his troublesome houseguest off the country’s couch so Assange can stop sucking all the air out of Ecuador’s faint presence on the world stage. 

Last week, the people of Ecuador elected a leftist named after the communist dictator Vladimir Lenin as their new president. 

It’s always a double-edged sword when Ecuador is in the news -- in the U.S., the little-known country at the equator usually flies far under the radar.

[OP-ED]: ¿Se librará el nuevo presidente de Ecuador de Julian Assange?

 04/14/2017 - 09:34
El presidente entrante prometió una reforma. Pero primero Moreno debe sacar del país a su conflictivo invitado para evitar que Assange absorba todo el aire de la débil presencia de Ecuador en la escena mundial. 

La semana pasada, el pueblo de Ecuador eligió para la presidencia a un izquierdista que lleva el nombre del dictador comunista Vladimir Lenin. 

Siempre es un arma de doble filo que Ecuador figure en las noticias—en Estados Unidos, este país poco conocido pasa desapercibido.
