Wall Street Journal – Ecuador Opposition Gains in Vote, Polls Show

This country’s two most populous cities, Quito and Guayaquil, were set to elect opposition mayors on Sunday in votes that President Rafael Correa called a setback for his Alianza Pais party.

Exit polls, which predicted the result, also showed that members of the ruling party were the likely winners in most other elections for local government officials.

Exit surveys from two pollsters, Cedatos-Gallup International and Market, showed Mauricio Rodas, a former presidential candidate running for the opposition Suma party, would be elected as mayor of Quito, the country’s capital. Mr. Rodas was running against Quito’s current mayor, Augusto Barrera, who is a member of the Alianza Pais party.
