It was not a simple farewell, it was a goodbye. Former President of Ecuador Rafael Correa, who yesterday left for Belgium indefinitely, said he left an “absolutely changed” country. However, he called on members of his party to safeguard his achievements.
Even in his last words, Correa maintained his confrontational style. The enemy was far from being the press or the opposition, he lashed out against his successor President Lenin Moreno. He returned, as he has done in recent days on his Twitter account, to criticize the conciliatory style and dialogue of the current regime.
Shortly before, Lenin Moreno, from the balcony of Carondelet, during the traditional Change of the Guard, said that although with “a change of style,” the “revolution” perpetrated by Correa for a decade still lingers in the country.
Correa does not see it like this. “Do not tell me that it is a change of style, the claudications, the appeasement. Principles must prevail, loyalty, coherence, excellence, not mediocrity, disloyalty, the strategy of differentiating from the previous government, they are favoring the opposition, those against whom we have fought for ten years,” he said.
