Through social networks, users have criticized Lasso after comparing women as an economic instrument that, in the opinion of the presidential candidate, during a campaign meeting assured that they are the representation of “foreign investment in Ecuador.”

Lasso’s words were “the girl has to dress up nicely and when she’s well dressed and pretty (…) she gets a boyfriend,” she said.

Continuing with his speech, Lasso affirmed that “this is Ecuador, you have to dress the economy well, you have to dress the economy, you have to do things well and many times not only dress, but do exercises that will involve a lot of effort, but you have to do it, so that foreign investment arrives ”, he said.

Before the criticism received, Lasso apologized this Thursday for his comments, through his Twitter account: “I recognize that my words yesterday in Machala caused discomfort in many women, for which I apologize. With humility you learn to be better each day.”
