There are thirteen specialized committees of the National Assembly that would be under the absolute control of the government movement Alianza PAIS (AP), which are to be confirmed today at a meeting called for this afternoon at 15:00.
The president of the assembly, Gabriela Rivadeneira, after meeting with President of the Republic, Rafael Correa, said the board composition of these tables is ready, and stressed that none of the assembly members has been chosen by finger.
One of AP’s lawmakers, Felix Alcivar, Assemblyman of Manabi, already went ahead and took possession of the office of the Commission on the Rights of Workers, located on the fourth floor of the Legislative Palace, to where he arrived along with a group of advisors and support staff.
It should be noted that in the office of such commission, they have not changed the labeling of the last president of that table, which was Sheznarda Fernandez, but Alcivar still took control of it and only expects the confirmation of his new position in the afternoon session.
Inside the ruling party the chairs of the committees have already being assigned and just awaiting for the voting process:
- Justice, Mauro Andino
- Economic Regime, Oswaldo Larriva
- Economic Development, Juan Carlos Cassinelli
- International Relations, Fernando Bustamante
- Biodiversity, Carlos Viteri
- Food Sovereignty, Miguel Carvajal
- Regional Governments, Richard Calderon
- Education, Ximena Ponce
- Health, Carlos Velasco
- Citizen Participation, Raul Patino
- Collective Rights, Zobeida Gudino
- Control, Gabriel Rivera
On the other hand, the opposition will have to accept the decision of AP with resignation, since it counts with the votes from representatives of the movement Avanza and other local movements, covering the plenary with 108 votes.
