Ecuadorian general election, 2023

The leftist

Social Christian Party and incoming president Noboa's centrist National Democratic Action, along with other minor parties agreed to form a legislative majority bringing it to at least 85 seats.[4]

President Noboa said the coalition is meant to support different proposals, including plans to generate jobs, especially for young people, and tackle violence. It will also be able to name the heads of key legislative committees.[4] Analysts stated the coalition could help Noboa ensure he is able to govern - unlike his predecessor Lasso - during his truncated term. "Noboa wants to have 18 months of relative calm by reaching these agreements with both political parties," said political analyst Alfredo Espinosa, adding Noboa recognizes he will not achieve anything without Correa's support.[4]
