El Pais reported:
The candidate for the presidency of Ecuador Fernando Villavicencio was shot to death this Wednesday afternoon after participating in a campaign event in Quito. The attack occurred in a school in the capital from which the applicant came. Villavicencio, whom most polls placed in fourth or fifth position among the opponents who will dispute the succession of Guillermo Lasso on August 20, presented himself as a battering ram against corruption under the slogan It’s time for the brave.
The 59-year-old politician was a member of the Assembly until its dissolution and chaired the audit commission. He was criticized for his actions in the impeachment process against Lasso, because that commission issued a report favorable to the president that did not have the support of other legislators. The attack occurs when there are 11 days to go before the elections in a country asphyxiated by an unprecedented crisis. During the campaign, the mayor of Manta, a key port for drug trafficking, and a candidate for the Assembly have been assassinated.
This is a breaking story…please check back for updates.
WEF strikes again
They’ve made a martyr
Look for CIA footprints!
“reportedly shot in the head three times”
What a surprise......
The communists are murdering our leaders, they murder us individually like the man in Utah murdered by the fbi, they imprison us for protesting, they call us evil while being evil themselves and so much more.
I used to call it CWII but this is what WWIII looks like.
The Elites can assure that South America is compromised. It’s easy to cheat there or they can just eliminate any threats. It’s why they installed a demented mannequin in the White House.
These acts - plus what they’re trying to do to Niger... the WEF and our CIA
The Right just tries to go along to get along.
Almost every assassination or assassination attempt involves a leftist going after a conservative. Look it up and see.
Does the CIA have an alibi?
They don’ need no steenking alibi!...................

We have officially gone from “cheat/fraud” in elections to “assassination.”
No doubt in my mind Biden ordered this.
They caught the perp.
We’ll see if he commits ‘suicide’..................
Anti-China Presidential Candidate Shot Dead in Ecuador

Unknown gunmen killed presidential candidate Fernando Villavicencio – running on a strong-on-crime, anti-corruption, anti-China platform – on Wednesday night before a massive crowd outside of a campaign event in Quito, Ecuador.
Villavicencio was one of eight candidates vying for the presidency of Ecuador. The election remains scheduled to take place on August 20, the result of current President Guillermo Lasso, a conservative, using a constitutional provision to dissolve the National Assembly (the federal legislature) in May and call for general elections. Lasso claimed the unprecedented measure was necessary because leftist lawmakers’ incessant attempts to impeach him had made the regular business of government impossible. Lasso is not one of the eight candidates on the ballot.
