Venezuela, Cuba congratulate Rafael Correa on victory in presidential elections in Ecuador

News | 18.02.2013 | 10:30
 

 

Governments of Venezuela and Cuba have congratulated Rafael Correa on his victory in the presidential elections in Ecuador.

Venezuela's Foreign Ministry said that re-election of Correa indicates the country’s movement towards consolidation of independence, sovereignty and improved quality of life for the population.

The head of Cuba Raul Castro welcomed Correa’s "decisive victory" which, in his opinion, is a testament to the support of the revolutionary course pursued by the President of Ecuador.

After counting 10% of the ballots, the incumbent president is seen to have garnered 57% of the votes.

Rafael Correa, incumbent president of Ecuador since 2006, has announced his victory in the elections held on Sunday.

The results of exit polls show that the incumbent garnered the support of 61% of the voters. His closest rival Guillermo Lasso secured the support of only 20%.

Correa also announced a program of action for the next term. He intends to work on increasing the country's role in OPEC.

The head of state promised to make every effort to attract investors to the country, hopes to create more jobs and conduct a tax reform.

Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa easily won re-election in Sunday's presidential vote, according to two private exit polls, providing a timely boost for Latin America's alliance of socialist leaders.

Correa won 61 percent of the vote compared with 21 percent for former banker Guillermo Lasso, the strongest showing of the seven opposition candidates in the race, according to a survey by polling firm Opinion Publica.

A separate exit poll by the firm Cedatos showed Correa winning 59 percent of the vote versus 20 percent for Lasso.

In accordance with the electoral law, a candidate wins in the first round if he receives more than half of the votes, or garners 40%, but outscores his closest rival by at least 10%.

In the vicinity of the presidential palace, Correa’s supporters are gathering to celebrate his victory

The electoral authority was expected to release an official quick-count by 7:00 p.m. EST (0000 GMT) based on 30 percent of the votes cast.

Ukrainian Nationalism Threatens Poland

Vasyl Pavlyuk, the Consulate General of Ukraine in Lublin, met the students of Maria Curie - Sklodowska Lublin University. Unexpectedly he was given a hard time. First, All-Polish Youth (Polish Młodzież Wszechpolska), a nationalistic Polish Youth Organization, held a conference near the University building. They said that meeting with Vasyl Pavlyuk was the same thing as meeting the supporters of Hitler, Himmler and other Nazi criminals. Then the protesters moved inside the University to see the Ukrainian Consulate General and raise the posters «Murderers! Shame! No Glory!»...
