Juana Vallejo returns to the government of Guayas, replacing José Francisco Cevallos. She held the position in 1988, in the government of former president Rodrigo Borja, of the Democratic Left.
Vallejo arrived in Guayaquil from Quito on the night of August 29, 2018. At the airport José Joaquín de Olmedo she confirmed her appointment by the government of President Lenín Moreno Garcés.
So, it happens for Cevallos, who was in office since May 2017. “Today I had the honor of being in the Presidency of the Republic, talking with the President, accepting his appointment as Governor.” I think it is a clear example of the dispartitization of the exercise of government, “she said.
She added that her administration will be open to everyone and that she will begin her work on urgent issues such as security. “Good things will be expanded and improved.” The press team of the Government has not confirmed the name of the new official who comes to replace Cevallos.
The presentation will be on Friday, August 31, at 3:00 p.m., in the Simon Bolivar Room of the Interior. During his time in the Government he lived in a time when the province was ravaged by high levels of crime and invasions. She was also Minister of Tourism during the government of President Fabián Alarcón (from 1997 to 1998).
One of her priorities during her time as minister was the establishment of security measures with the objective of preserving the Galapagos Islands. Years later, between 2003 and 2007, she won a seat in the Andean Parliament with the Social Christian Party. And in 2007 she was a candidate for the Constituent Assembly for the National Concertación movement, but she did not win the seat.
This newspaper learned that Cevallos presented in Quito the resignation of the governor this August 29. He seems like pre-candidate for the Prefecture of Guayas by the official movement Alianza País. He is also the current president of the Barcelona Sporting Club. (I)
