Ecuador President Guillermo Lasso survives an impeachment vote

 (FMNews)-Ecuador President Guillermo Lasso has survived an impeachment vote after the opposition failed to gather enough votes to oust him. The motion garnered 80 votes in the 137-member Congress yesterday. In all, 92 votes were needed to remove Lasso from office. Forty-eight lawmakers rejected the motion.

 

 

 The President's political survival comes as the government offered concessions worth more than 600 million dollars, including lowering fuel prices, to try to dissipate the violent social unrest that has paralyzed the Andean country since mid-June.

Protests have led to food and medicine shortages and slashed oil output. Largely indigenous demonstrators have been marching to protest against high fuel and food prices since the 13th of June. At least eight people have died in the protests.
