Ecuador has elected its youngest president. Who is Daniel Noboa?

Daniel Noboa has managed to do what his father failed at five times: Getting elected as Ecuador’s president.

And he did it Oct. 15 on his first attempt, winning a runoff election against a leftist lawyer on the resume of a 35-year-old who belongs to the South American country’s elite, which means some schooling in the United States, some entrepreneurial work, and some dabbling in politics.

Now, he must answer the universal demand to make Ecuador safe again, which voters urged on all the candidates who originally jumped into the race amid a surge in unprecedented violence tied to drug trafficking.
