ELECTIONS

The National Electoral Council (CNE) of Ecuador has officially announced the start of the electoral period, marking the path for the next elections in the country. As established, Ecuadorians are scheduled to head to the polls on February 9, 2025, in what will be a crucial process in determining the future direction of the nation.

The elected authorities will take office in May 2025 and will be in charge of leading the country

During the session, the CNE councilors also approved the detailed electoral calendar. According to this calendar, the first round of the elections will take place on Sunday, February 9, 2025. If necessary, a second round is scheduled for Sunday, April 13 of the same year.

The elected authorities will take office in May 2025 and will be in charge of leading the country for the next four years. This electoral process follows the guidelines established in the Code of Democracy, which requires the declaration of the electoral period one year before the elections. The phases of the process include pre-election, electoral and post-election. The plenary session of the electoral body, under the presidency of Diana Atamaint since November 2018, has been working on preparations to organize what will be the seventh electoral process under her administration. As part of this process, the CNE has also announced that elections will be held on March 17, 2024 to elect members of the rural parish council of Sosote, in the Rocafuerte canton (Manabí), as well as the election of members of the La Primavera and La Magdalena districts, in the Shushufindi canton (Sucumbíos).
