The Alianza PAIS candidate now offers an anti-corruption law in the first 100 days of his hypothetical presidency. The CREO-SUMA Alliance proposes a Truth Commission, that will be created with the help of the United Nations.
Daily Expreso asked Lenin Moreno’s communication team for more details on the legal proposal, but there was no response.
Aparicio Caicedo, the spokesman for the CREO party, believes that “it is not a matter of making more laws. Corruption is confronted with values and education,” he told the Daily yesterday.
The official announcement of an anti-corruption law comes amid corruption scandals in the Petroecuador state oil company or Odebrecht cases targeting government officials.
Caicedo insists that moral integrity is needed, not promises. “Why do not they deliver the corrupt Odebrecht officials before those 100 days?” he asked.
And he explained the plan of the presidential candidate Guillermo Lasso: a Truth Commission. “We have had informal dialogues with them (United Nations) to activate an agreement on the issue. No more laws are needed, but actions and political will,” he added.
Legal analysts and even legislators of Alianza PAIS agree with him.
