Ecuadorian president wins 2nd reelection: official results

Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa was re-elected in Sunday's elections, according to preliminary results.

The incumbent won 56.36 percent of the vote against 24.09 percent for his closest challenger, former banker Guillermo Lasso, after about 40 percent of the ballots were counted, figures of the National Electoral Council show.

The final results are not expected to change greatly, said the electoral authority.

Under Ecuador's electoral law, a presidential candidate wins outright in the first round if he or she garners more than 40 percent of the vote and has a 10-point advantage over the closest rival.

Right before the release of the official preliminary results, Correa had already begun celebrating his victory, given his overwhelming advantage against rival candidates in two exit polls.

"Today I am most committed than ever. We can't take a single step backwards. We have the immense trust of the people to definitely change the fatherland. May God reward you, the victory is from each and every one of you," Correa told a crowd of excited supporters.

Born in Guayaquil, Ecuador's second largest city, in 1963, Correa is a U.S.-trained economist who also speaks French, English and some Quechua, one of the country's most prevalent indigenous languages. He has fought for rights of the poor and working class and successfully negotiated to reduce Ecuador's foreign debt burden by some 60 percent.

Correa was first elected president in November 2006 and took office in January 2007 for a four-year term. But a new constitution in 2008 called for new elections, and he was re-elected in April 2009.

Leading one of South America's smallest nations, Correa gained worldwide fame in August 2012 for facing down U.S. and UK authorities and granting political asylum to WikiLeaks' founder Julian Assange, who believed he was being persecuted by those world powers for his whistle-blowing website.

当地时间2月17日厄瓜多尔举行总统选举投票。根据厄国家选举委员会于当日晚7点公布的初步计票结果,现任总统拉斐尔·科雷亚·德尔加多获得56.36%的选票,再次成功连任。

厄瓜多尔选举法律规定,如首轮投票产生的优胜者得票率高于40%且领先第二名超过10个百分点,则直接赢得大选,无需进行第二轮投票。由于紧随其后的银行家候选人吉列尔莫·拉索得票率为24.09%,因此,尽管计票工作尚未全部结束,科雷亚总统当选已成定局。

南美国家联盟派出选举观察员代表团监督了此次选举全过程,并表示选举流程公正透明,对选举结果没有异议。

科雷亚1963年4月6日出生于厄瓜多尔瓜亚基尔市,1987年他毕业于厄瓜多尔天主教大学经济学专业,1991年获比利时私立高等学府鲁汶天主教大学经济学硕士学位,2001年获美国伊利诺伊大学经济学博士学位。1993年至2005年间,科雷亚先后担任圣弗朗西斯科大学首席教授、经济系主任、社会经济研究中心主任。2005年4月,他被任命为厄瓜多尔财政和经济部长,同年8月因观点激进被免职。2006年11月,科雷亚当选厄瓜多尔总统,次年1月宣誓就职。2009年4月,厄瓜多尔举行通过新宪法后首次大选,科雷亚再次顺利当选,任期4年。
