This article is part of a series on the
politics and government of
Ecuador

Ecuador elects on national level a head of state, (a president), and a legislature. The President of the Republic and his vice-president are elected on one ballot for a four-year term by the people. The National Congress (Congreso Nacional) has 100 members elected for a four-year term in the 22 provinces (so multi-seat constituencies).

Ecuador has a multi-party system, with numerous parties in which no one party often has a chance of gaining power alone; consequently; parties must work with each other to form coalition governments.
