    QUITO, Ecuador ó The demand of dozens of citizens has been denied in the Ecuadorean city of Guayaquil: There will be no jackass running for the legislature. At least 40 people paraded their candidate through the cityís streets to the electoral council offices. Mr. Burro even wore a tie. But officials refused to even let them in the door on Thursday, even though backers had dummied up a mock voter registration card showing the candidateís photo superimposed on a man wearing a business suit. Donkey backer Daniel Molina told local television stations the goal was to call votersí attention to the seriousness of the February election, not to insult any party.
