Fernando Yávar, member of the Citizens Commission on Selection (CCS), said yesterday that if they check that Galo Chiriboga, candidate for General Attorney, gave four days of university teaching, and not six months (as is the minimum), he will lose a point from the CCS score. However, he ruled out the possibility of disqualifying him from the contest.
Yávar mentioned that the exact time that Chiriboga taught “is now known just by the press” and that does not appear “in the do the document attached to his folder.” He also noted that “if the wording of the certificate is not accurate, it is a problem of the university (the one that issued it) rather than a problem of the candidate, because its obligation was to provide certainty of his certificate”
Chiriboga entered the contest with a Certificate from the Graduate Studies Unit of the State University indicating that the graduate course reported by Chiriboga was conducted in the 2000-2001 school year. But the same unit specified then through another certificate that he just gave four days of classes in November 2000.
