The two most voted presidential candidates during the first round will go to the ballot on Apr. 11, 2021.
Ecuador's right-wing presidential candidate Guillermo Lasso on Monday asked his voters to wait until the National Electoral Council (CNE) proclaims the scrutiny's official results to define leftist candidate Andres Arauz's rival.
"I will wait for CNE official results and I will accept them even if it is a defeat that keeps me out from the run-off," Lasso stated.
According to the CNE, with 99.27 percent of the tally sheets processed, Arauz goes first with 32.07 percent of the votes, Pachakutik Party's candidate Yaku Perez is second with 20.1 percent, and Lasso is third with 19.49 percent.
These preliminary results are not accurate enough to assure who will be the second most voted candidate to compete with Arauz during the run-off.
