Second Round Of Voting Needed In Ecuador

In a follow up to yesterday's post, Rafael Correa, the leftist candidate in the Ecuadoran presidential election -- who was favored to win -- didn't get enough votes to avoid a runoff, which has been scheduled for Nov. 26.

The runoff will be between Correa and one of Ecuador's richest men, Alvaro Noboa. Noboa has been accused of employing child labor on his banana farms, a charge which he denies. Noboa also has spent $2.5 million on his campaign.
