Guillermo Lasso
Creating Opportunities

Incumbent president Lenín Moreno, who has held the office since his victory over Guillermo Lasso in 2017, is not seeking reelection.[4]

Early results showed that Andrés Arauz was leading, but not enough to avoid a second round. Guillermo Lasso advanced to the run-off after coming in second place, beating Yaku Pérez Guartambel.[5]

Former president Lucio Gutiérrez also ran in the election as a member of the Sociedad Patriótica party.[6]

The second round was held on April 11, with Lasso defeated Arauz.[7] Lasso will be inaugurated on May 24, 2021.
