Ecuadorians say no to indefinite presidential terms
In yesterday's national referendum on disallowing indefinite presidential terms, Ecuadorians voted strongly in support yesterday. Preliminary result showing 64% agreed to limit presidents to just 2 terms in office. This will thwart past president Rafael Correa and his plans to return to the presidency in 2021 after having acted as president for 2 terms, the last which ended in 2017.
I would suspect that Galapagos residents likely voted in an even greater proportion against unlimited term limits - as there has always been a testy relationship between Correa, his party, and Galapagos residents. For more information, see the short BBC article by clicking here.
