Ecuador Electoral Authority to Be Observer of Chile Runoff Election

QUITO – The vice president of Ecuador’s National Electoral Council (CNE), Ana Marcela Paredes, will act as an international observer during the presidential runoff election this Sunday in Chile, the organization announced on Saturday.

Competing in the second round of voting this Sunday will be the conservative Sebastian Piñera, candidate of the rightist Let’s Go Chile coalition, and ruling party’s Sen. Alejandro Guillier, heading the center-left New Majority coalition.

In the first round last Nov. 19, Piñera took 36 percent of the vote while Guillier took 22.68 percent, in an election in which eight candidates were in the running, and with a participation slightly higher than 46 percent for a total of 6,676,319 voters who turned up at the polls.

On her agenda of activities as an international observer, Paredes will meet with the president of the Electoral Service Directing Council, Patricio Santamaria Mutis, and with the head of the Elections Qualifying Court, Patricio Valdes Aldunate.

Paredes has participated as an international observer in elections in Bosnia and Herzegovina, as part of the delegation of the Association of World Election Bodies (A-WEB), as well as in electoral missions of the Union of South American Nations (Unasur) in Bolivia, Guyana and Russia.

She also works as an observer for democracy in the office of the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (IDEA) at the United Nations in New York.

Paredes maintains that international observation has become an auxiliary mechanism for assuring the integrity of elections.

Within that mission, Ecuador is positioned as a reference of electoral policy, and its CNE has strengthened its ability to work in the international context, she said.
