Guayaquil, ECUADOR: Ecuadorean presidential candidate Rafael Correa speaks during a press conference after his victory in Sunday’s 2nd roud elections, in Guayaquil, Province of Guayas, 27 November 2006. Correa, a Christian leftist economist and friend of Venezuela’s anti-US President Hugo Chavez, claimed victory in Ecuador’s runoff presidential election Sunday with a large margin over his conservative rival, banana magnate Alvaro Noboa. “Thank God, we have triumphed,” Correa, 43, told cheering supporters in Quito after exit polls and a projection had him triumphing with a lead of about 37 points over Bible-thumping tycoon Alvaro Noboa.
