“This requirement means not to postpone and / or suspend the electoral appointment date by the wrong use of events such as the epidemic caused by the Coronavirus,” Espacio Futuro erases warned in separate messages.
Likewise, they called on “the Ecuadorian electoral authorities and the political actors participating in these elections” to “abide by the deadlines for scrutiny stipulated in the legislation”.
