The ‘metamorphosis’ is slow and full of complexities. The latest changes in the cabinet of President Lenin Moreno lead one to think that he is building a circle of confidence that gives him more room for governance.

The referendum will be an excellent opportunity to legitimize himself politically and to be able to apply some changes,” Sierra states. (I)
