A referendum on allowing the election of independents was held in Ecuador on 2 June 1986 alongside provincial elections.[1] The proposal was rejected by 69% of voters.

The same question was later asked in a 1994 referendum, with voters voting in favour.[2]


Do you want independent citizens to have every right to be elected without being affiliated to any political party, thus confirming the equality of all Ecuadorians before the law?
