Elizabeth Cabezas Guerrero (b. 14 June 1963, Riobamba) is an Ecuadorian economist and politician.[1] She has been the President of the National Assembly since 14 March 2018.[2]

Political career[edit]

Cabezas was elected to the Municipal councilor for the city of Quito in August 2009. She was next elected to the National Assembly in the 2017 Ecuadorian legislative elections to represent Pichincha Province and the PAIS Alliance.[3] Her election was criticized by the Popularity Unity party, who alleged electoral fraud. This accusation has been rejected by the National Election Council.[4][5]

Following the dismissal of José Serrano and the shakeup in the PAIS Alliance headed by Lenín Moreno, Cabezas was elected the new President of the National Assembly on 14 March 2018. The portion of the PAIS Alliance still loyal to Rafael Correa denounced her election as unconstitutional.[6]
