Vice President Glas will be registered for re-election

Through Twitter, the governing party’s presidential candidate, Lenin Moreno, announced he and current Vice-President Jorge Glas will register on 16 November 2016 as the Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidates for the ruling party--Alianza Pais (El Comercio, 15 November 2016). Moreno and Glas were to originally register their candidacies on 14 November, only to have the registration event cancelled. It was widely speculated that the candidacy registration was postponed due to possible ties from Vice President Jorge Glass with the Panama Papers. President Rafael Correa along with other local and parliament candidates from Alianza Pais will be present when Presidential ticket is registered at The National Election Council (El Telegrafo).
