The suspension of the printing of the ballots for the next elections is the request made by the Minister of Citizen Participation Hernán Ulloa to President Lenín Moreno, until the final pronouncement of the Contentious Electoral Tribunal (TCE) is given.
In a letter addressed to the president, he suggested that he make this suggestion to the Military Geographical Institute in order to avoid wasting State resources. “I suggest (…) that you request the Military Geographical Institute (IGM) of the Armed Forces of Ecuador (FFAA) to suspend the printing of electoral ballots, until the final pronouncement of the TCE regarding the complaint for non-compliance with one of its sentences ”.
“The last word in electoral matters is held by the Contentious Electoral Tribunal (TCE), the judicial entity of the Electoral Branch, and not the National Electoral Council (CNE), which is the administrative entity of the Electoral Branch. The TCE is about to resolve the breach of one of its sentences and who knows if this resolution would change the electoral landscape and the ballot, ”the letter says.
“I make this request, guaranteeing my absolute independence with some political ideological position, and with the firm conviction that it is done correctly, in law and justice, especially with fair play,” says Ulloa. (I)
