Interesting fact about election results in province Manabi: as you probably know, an earthquake occurred in Ecuador on April 16, 2016 with a moment magnitude of 7.8. Widespread damage was caused across Manabi province, with structures collapsing. Why these structures collapsed? Buildings had collapsed because of poor construction. First, concrete cement was mixed with sea (beach) sand, that sand is too salty and affected the concrete strength. Second, houses simply fell over themselves or violently inclined because the foundation could not bear to the upper floors.
The whole world donated money to Ecuador to help people of Manabi who lost their houses, to survive and rebuild, however majority of these who lost their houses still live in now rotten tents.
Taxes were raised in Ecuador, IVA was 12%, now 14% to fund earthquake recovery. IVA translates in English as value added tax (VAT). However majority of these who lost their houses still live in now rotten tents.
53,89% of people of Manabi voted for the current regime.
Election drama continues..
