Institutional Renewal Party of National Action

The Institutional Renewal Party of National Action ("Partido Renovador Institucional de Acción Nacional") [http://www.prian.org.ec] is a right wing populist political party in Ecuador. At the legislative elections, 20 October 2002, the party won 10 out of 100 seats. Its candidate Álvaro Noboa, the wealthiest person in Ecuador, won 17.4% of the vote in the presidential elections of the same day, but was defeated in the second round. At the October 2006 elections, Noboa was the party's presidential candidate again. This time he came in first place in the first round, winning 26% of the vote, but again lost the runoff, this time against Rafael Correa. At the congressional elections the party won 28 of the 100 seats and will be the largest party in Congress.

In 1998, Alvaro Noboa became the outside runner in the presidential elections. He achieved a technical draw with the man who then became President of Ecuador. Alvaro's popularity was left unscathed, and on 20 September 2002 all polling companies with the exception of one predicted that Alvaro Noboa would have become President of Ecuador if the elections had been held on that day. Today, polls show that Alvaro Noboa remains the number one choice of the Ecuadorian citizen to become the next President of Ecuador.

In 2002, Alvaro Noboa inspired and guided the foundation of the PRIAN political Party. The Party was an immediate success after it was established and gained ten seats in Congress in less than six months.

During the last presidential campaign, Alvaro Noboa's mission was consistent with his career path and life. The mission stated the need to fight corruption, reactivate the economy, provide jobs for all Ecuadorians, promote low-income housing for all citizens, establish a national health plan and implement an educational plan. Today, Alvaro Noboa is seen as a political, economic and social leader in Ecuador.

During this last presidential campaign, the second one in his political career, he lost with a small percentage to Coronel Lucio Gutierrez. Again there was talk of fraud in these elections.

Alvaro Noboa has structured his PRIAN Political Party in such a way that today it is the second leading force insofar as votes are concerned among a field of fourteen political parties.

The man who instituted public service with the use of his own funds has kept his "Medical Brigades" in a ceaseless relief effort since 1998 thus proving sincerity behind social-minded convictions.

In the mid-term elections of 2004 the PRIAN Party got 19 mayors of different cities of Ecuador elected as well as 1 prefect and more than 70 council-members in different provinces. Alvaro Noboa, as leader of the PRIAN Party, campaigned in favor of these elected dignitaries.

For a third time Álvaro Noboa ran for president representing the PRIAN political party, registering his candidacy in the supreme electoral tribunal on august 15th of 2006.

With a liberal democratic and social justice platform, openess to foreign investment an ambitious housing plan, which as a whole, would multiply employment with an emphasis on the quality of health and education, Álvaro Noboa won the first electoral round on november of 2006 and turned his party, the PRIAN, into the leading electoral presence in the country. With 27 elected members of congress the PRIAN obtained the right to place the president of congress from among its ranks.
