The leader of the political movement Creating Opportunities (CREO), Guillermo Lasso, questioned the creation of a Regulatory Board of Territory Land; In addition, he considered that the preliminary draft of the Zoning Law and Land Use is “one more piece of the legal framework used to build a controller status in the country”.
For his part, the Mayor of Guayaquil, Jaime Nebot, insisted that he will not abide the law in case it is approved, invoking the resistance right for the constitutional precept to not obey a law that has no legal validity. He did not specify which of the two mechanisms will be used.
For him, the invasions and the added value are not justifications but pretexts to adopt this standard.
When being Questioned about a group of mayors who met with the Government and would be in favour of the draft law, the Mayor replied that both Bolivar Castillo and Marcelo Cabrera, elected mayors of Loja and Cuenca, in their order, are defending the competence of their municipalities and all of the country, about the use of the land.
