Justicia Social may register Álvaro Noboa as its presidential candidate; Electoral Court ordered the CNE to be allowed to choose candidates from the primaries
A ‘erase and go again’ for the Social Justice political movement , which will be able to carry out from the primary election process to choose candidates for all the dignities that will be chosen in the 2021 general elections.
Even candidates for the Presidency and Vice-Presidency of the Republic, whose aspiration is to register the politician and businessman Álvaro Noboa and Gino Cornejo , in their order, as the binomial of List 11.
This possibility for the political organization, occurs once the Contentious Electoral Tribunal (TCE) specified to the National Electoral Council (CNE) in a final sentence handed down on the night of this December 8, how it should apply the comprehensive reparation measures that are issued in a ruling on October 30, when its legal status was ratified.
Thus, the ECA ordered three things to the Council. First: carry out the process of primary elections and acceptance of candidacies in those electoral districts that have not carried them out because they do not have the same time and certainty as the other political organizations.
Second: that it confer a new deadline for them to start the administrative process of registration of all the candidacies for the dignities of popular election that are constant in the call for elections, without prejudice to explicitly and exclusively validate those that are qualified and firm.
And, third: proceed to qualify the candidacies that are registered in the new term granted by the electoral administrative body, which may be corrected within the term provided by law, in the event of non-compliance with constitutional and legal requirements.
This sentence was sent to the judge of first instance, Arturo Cabrera, to supervise and report the unrestricted compliance with what was dictated by the TCE within ten days from the execution of the first resolution.
The ruling warns the five CNE directors that rulings and resolutions are mandatory, of last resort and immediate compliance.
“The CNE is warned that it is not within its power to decide whether or not to comply with the judgments” of the Court, “under precautions of incurring in electoral infraction without prejudice to the criminal sanction to which the breach of legitimate order of competent authority may give rise ”.
