Recount Votes in Ecuadorean Election | Say No to electoral Fraud

This petition had 6,950 supporters

On 2nd April 2017 Ecuador held elections for President and Vice-President, Mr Guillermo Lasso, opposition leader and Mr Lenin Moreno representing the officialism. 2 out of the 3 survey companies announced that Mr Lasso won the election with results between 51% and 53% versus 49%-47% (Moreno), after they carried out their exit-polls.

These figures came in line with Lasso's electoral control centre that gave 51% of the votes to Guillermo Lasso. This centre takes the results by collecting pictures of the paper scrutiny tally sheets and adding them up.

The Electoral National Council - Consejo Nacional Ectoral (CNE), 3 hours later, announced that Mr Moreno has won the election with 51.15% vs 48.85% (Lasso)

After checking paper scrutiny tally sheets, and comparing them against the CNE website's results, Lasso's electoral control centre, found out that there were 2 types of inconsistencies in 1795 scrutiny tally sheets.

1. Some scrutiny tally sheets, where Lasso was winning in the paper version, gave Lasso's votes to Moreno, and Moreno's Votes to Lasso in the CNE website.

 2.  Some other scrutiny tally sheets (4%) where Moreno was winning, showed him winning on a ratio of 80%-20% contrary to the tendency of other ballot boxes in the same polling centres and to the tendency that the other 96% of scrutiny tally sheets were showing.

Since elections day, there have been hundreds of thousands of people in several demonstrations across the country and in front of several Ecuadorean Embassies around the world, repudiating the electoral fraud.

Over half of the country supports a voting recount that goes in line with the law and with absolute transparency in order to guarantee legitimacy for he next president.

We ask the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights to make a statement requesting the need of transparency in the Ecuadorean elections, the need of a vote recount that goes in line with the law and to guarantee democracy in the country.
