“In the end the YASunidos were a very long way off having enough signatures for a referendum.
Nearly 240,000 signatures were ruled out in the latest round of audits for not even being genuine.
That was decisive. It means that even if they’d included all the signatures ruled out in previous audits, where people were ruled out for being underage or for not being on the electoral register, the YASunidos would still have fallen well short.
The auditing was overseen by international observers from the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR), who have previously commended Ecuador for the fairness of its electoral processes
The option of a referendum remains on the table where people are able to collect enough genuine signatures. For that they need 5% of the registered electorate”.
