General elections were held in Ecuador in 1978 and 1979.[1] The first round of the presidential election was held on 16 July 1978, with a second round held alongside parliamentary elections on 29 April 1979.[1] The presidential election was won by Jaime Roldós Aguilera of the Concentration of People's Forces (CPF), who received 68.5% of the vote in the run-off, becoming the country's first freely-elected president.[2] The CPF emerged as the largest party in the National Congress, winning 29 of the 69 seats.[3]
