    People in Ecuador are voting in the second and final round of elections for a new president to replace incumbent Rafael Correa, who has been in power for 10 years.

    Voters will choose between former vice president, Lenin Moreno, and conservative banker Guillermo Lasso.

    The country's struggling economy has been the main issue in the election campaign, along with corruption and crime.

    Al Jazeera's Daniel Schweimler reports from the capital, Quito.
