The regime leader, Rafael Correa, signed an electoral reform that keeps the families of those in an executive function may not be candidates for any public elective office, except as postulated in a party other than the party or alliance that is in power.
The draft amendment to the Electoral Act, was sent by Correa on September 24. However, just yesterday it was learned the text, then was distributed to the assembly.
Correa maintained that the reform seeks to “liberate perhaps forever of those processes caudillistas individualistic.”
“You need to take a legislative measure to not allow the families of the figures that achieve the quality of agents, may be imposed as candidates within political organizations,” said the leader of the regime.
Days ago, a sister of President Correa, Pierina Correa Delgado broke away from the ruling party, Alianza PAIS, apparently because he failed to be the Prefect of Guayas candidate.
