Live News: Chinese Equities Edge Lower After Smaller than Expected Interest Rate Cut

Leftist Luisa González and centre-right businessman Daniel Noboa will face off in a second round of Ecuador’s presidential election, after voters failed to choose an outright winner in Sunday’s vote.

On Sunday night, with nearly 70 per cent of the vote counted, González — an ex-lawmaker loyal to socialist former president Rafael Correa — had 33 per cent, followed by Noboa with 24 per cent.

As no candidate received more than 50 per cent of the vote, or 40% with a lead of over ten points, both González and Noboa will contest the second round on October 15th.
