The Colombian ambassador to Quito, Manuel Enriquez Rosero, told Efe that “unfortunately,” due to the closure of access roads to the cities of Ecuador where polling stations for the presidential election were set up, “we have had a low turnout.”
According to Enriquez Rosero, 10 percent of the 35,000 Colombians who registered to vote in this second round of the election had approached to exercise the right since last Monday, when the process began.
In the first round of the presidential election, on May 29, Ecuador was attended by 6,906 people, 3,656 of them at tables set up in Quito, the ambassador recalled.
