Ecuadorian President-Elect: I Will Lead a Government of Dialogue

QUITO – Lenin Moreno, who on Tuesday was officially declared Ecuador’s president-elect by election authorities, said that he will head a government of “dialogue” and “solidarity” and that he will work to defend the achievements made during the tenure of outgoing President Rafael Correa.

At the ceremony to provide him with his credentials as president-elect, held in Parliament, Moreno – who takes office on May 24 – said that he will defend “all the rights and achievements reached” over the past 10 years, during which the Alianza Pais movement has been in power.

“We recall ... that in that decade two million Ecuadorians emerged from poverty. In that decade, Ecuador became the country with the best highways in Latin America, one of the five countries in the world with energy sovereignty, which has medical and hospital services,” he said.

The head of Alianza Pais said that he will be the “president of dialogue,” adding that he will govern with the “criterion of sovereignty,” which he distinguished from “charity” because the latter “is done in a vertical way, with someone considered to be inferior, and what is left over is given to him.”

“Solidarity is horizontal, among equals. It’s when a human being who considers himself equal to another gives him something that’s not left over but rather that, on more than one occasion, he lacks,” Moreno said.
