Elected President

Guillermo Lasso
Creating Opportunities

A general election was held in Ecuador on 7 February 2021, the date for the first round of the presidential election, and also a vote about mining in Cuenca.

Incumbent president Lenín Moreno, who has held the office since his victory over Guillermo Lasso in 2017, is not seeking reelection.

Early results showed that Andrés Arauz was leading, but not enough to avoid a second round. Guillermo Lasso advanced to the run-off after coming in second place, beating Yaku Pérez Guartambel.

Former president Lucio Gutiérrez also ran in the election as a member of the Sociedad Patriótica party.

The second round was held on April 11, with Lasso defeated Arauz. Lasso will be inaugurated on May 24, 2021.
