Lenin Moreno gave Guillermo Lasso a country with far more difficult difficulties than he had been elected four years earlier. The last two were particularly difficult, see why:
- 2019 – The announcement of the abolition of the fuel subsidy gave rise to a widespread political crisis that led to protests in Ecuador under indigenous leadership. Suppression was strong, and there were deaths and curfews.
- 2020 – The coronovirus epidemic led to the country’s largest city of Guayaquil leading to the chaos of the hospital and funeral in April, with the bodies left in the streets. Residents saw vultures flying above the houses at the height of the crisis.
