One of the objectives is to create a bridge with the proposal made by President Rafael Correa and give more participation to citizens in the processed bills.
However, a resolution will be also discussed at the plenary to reject the demonstrations of the last month and a half by the Inheritance and Capital Gains bills.
Legislator Ramiro Aguilar (independiente) explained the reasons why the proposal of the ruling party is illegal and unethical. At the constitutional level, the resolution prohibits the opposition whose right is guaranteed in Section 111 of the Constitution.
Section 387 of the Code of Democracy that prohibits disqualification of opponents would be also violated. On the moral level he ensures that the text is a total submission to the Legislative Branch, violating the principle of independence of powers.
Diego Salgado, CREO, describes as a “political provocation” the text that will be proposed by Alianza País (AP), because it seeks that the Assembly ratifies as a function of the State the Executive branch’s speech. Salgado questioned its legality, constitutionality and warned it will not contribute to the climate of dialogue.
The resolution has terms that the ruling party and the president have reiterated. Such as demonstrations are promoted by opposition groups of “extreme right” and denounce coup attempts.
