President Rafael Correa Delgado, has partially vetoed the draft Law on Territorial Planning, Land Use and Management, thus, it returns to the National Assembly.
The legislative body will have 30 days to resolve the objection of the president. There are several issues that, according to Correa, should not be contained in this law. Regarding the formulation or updating of the development plans and land management of decentralized autonomous governments, the president thinks these should be regulated by a standard issued by the Technical Board of Land Use and Management and not by the law.
That is, the executive branch of the government thinks that this is a matter of legislative development and not of the law itself, otherwise, when the technical body wants to adjust the local needs it will have the need to propose a legal reform.
