The only two cities who didn’t recognize the CTG as the entity in charge were Jujan and Yaguachi.The Board will be composed by a total of 12 members: 4 of them will represent all of the cities, except for Guayaquil, where there will be 8 members. Daniel Avecillas and Jorge Herrera, Mayors of Yaguachi and Jujan respectively did not agree to integrate the new entity to regulate traffic in the Province.
According to Francisco León, president of AME (Asociación de Municipalidades Ecuatorianas), the Mayor of Jujan will sign the agreement within the next few hours, while the Mayor of Yaguachi did not sign because he “did not agree on the way the delegates of the Assembly will be distributed”.
On Monday, an extraordinay session was convened to gather the city councils representatives. After three hours, the agreement reached by the authorities was to create the Association of Traffic in Guayas, in an attempt to stop the disappearance of the CTG. The rest of mayors of the cities relied on the Article 130 of the COOTAD (Código Orgánico de Organización Territorial, Autonomías y Descentralización) which allows them to have exclusivity to plan, regulate and control the transit, transportation and road safety inside their territory. In addition, Article 285 of the same Law allows them to make Associations, therefore the institution will be official immediately.
