    The Ecuadorian election could decide the fate of the founder of anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks.

    Julian Assange has been taking political asylum at the Ecuadorian embassy in London for five years now.

    But a conservative candidate says if he wins, he will evict Assange within a month.

    Al Jazeera's Nadim Baba reports from London.
