Mayors elected by the SUMA movement, qualify as “hasty” the decision of Assemblyman Ramiro Aguilar to get away from the political group and they note that their approach to the regime is not over “ideological issues,” but to achieve consensus for the benefit of their communities.
Rammses Torres, elected mayor of Guaranda said that Aguilar’s decision is wrong and does not help at a time when the country “demand for consensus and agreements on the basis of governance.”
Jorge Zambrano, elected mayor of Manta, said he regrets Aguilar’s decision but said they can not be sectarian. “We as elected mayors have to coordinate the efforts of the various levels of government to provide better results in public investment and to benefit the community,” he said.
Meanwhile Aguilar said he took that decision because SUMA is no longer a “political choice” for him because they are “developing a spirit of coexistence with the government.” And that has maimed the goal of its political project: to oppose the regime.
