In the 7 February presidential election in Ecuador 36 year old leftwing candidate Andrés Arauz won the most votes, currently 33%.
With a new Biden presidency in the US, and in the wake of the return of the Movement Towards Socialism to the Bolivian presidency, the Ecuadorian elections are of great importance to the Left regionally and internationally. Join us as we explore the key issues at stake, whether Arauz is likely to win in April and what his presidency could mean for Ecuador and Latin America.
Panelists: Fidel Narvaez (political analyst and former diplomat at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London), Joe Emersberger (political analyst)
Chaired by: Pablo Navarrete (Alborada co-editor) and Rachael Boothroyd (Alborada contributing editor)
