I note with interest the difficult decision Ecuadorian voters have before them.

Yesterday's Presidential election saw no outright winner so now there will be a run off between

  1. Alvaro Noboa, Ecuador's richest man (who recieved around 27% of the first round votes)
  2. Rafael Correa, a leftist who opposes the free trade deal with the US (23% of the first round votes)

The last three Ecuadorian Presidents have been driven from office by popular protest, so I'm cool either way really. Even if Noboa wins he wont last long.
