COHA Webinar: Ecuadorian Presidential Elections and the comeback of the Citizens’ Revolution
With Ricardo Patiño, former Foreign Affairs Minister of president Rafael Correa (2010 to 2016).
Join COHA to analyze the decisive presidential election taking place this February 7 in Ecuador.
COHA Senior Research Fellows Alina Duarte and Professor Danny Shaw will interview Ricardo Patiño about the national and regional social, economic, and political implications of the presidential election in Ecuador.
On February 7, Ecuadoreans will choose between the increasingly unpopular neoliberal path forged by President Lenin Moreno since his surprise pivot to the right in 2017, and a resumption of the Citizens’ Revolution, which had advanced social investment and economic growth under former President Rafael Correa (2007-2017). While under Moreno, Quito has withdrawn from efforts at regional integration, presidential candidate Andrés Arauz (Union of Hope, UNES) has promised to restore Ecuador’s role in UNASUR, ALBA and CELAC. There is, therefore, a great deal at stake for both Ecuador and the entire region.
