Daniel Noboa has been sworn in as president of Ecuador, as the country faces debt repayments, social unrest, and surging crime.

Noboa, 35, the son of banana magnate and five-time presidential candidate Álvaro Noboa, has yet to finalise his cabinet.

Curbing drug-related violence in the Andean nation will be Noboa’s priority, with the murder rate jumping 300 per cent in five years. At his inauguration on Thursday he also promised to create jobs.

Noboa’s administration will last only 17 months as he completes the term of outgoing president Guillermo Lasso.
