In the National Assembly there was, until Tuesday, February 27, 2018, the certainty that an agreement would be reached to elect the members of the Council of Citizen Participation.
The Legislative Secretariat sent two summonses to the assembly members. One for the voting of the seven triples. It is expected to be at 4:00 p.m. and the other to give way directly to the possession of the new authorities, at 19:00.
On Tuesday the details for the act began to be finalized in the Palace. However, the banks preferred to handle with caution the position they will adopt in the Plenary. The National Integration Bank (BIN), of the independent group, reported that it has not been able to gather all the information from the applicants. “In the seventh shortlist there are three women who have little known (…) we would have preferred people who stood out,” said René Yandún, coordinator of the legislative group.
In any case, he confirmed that they will vote in accordance with the mandate of the citizenship of the consultation on February 4. The group of 29 correístas legislators, who are part of the Citizen Revolution group, hardened their position in front of the conformation of the transitory Council and resolved, yesterday, to vote against the proposals. Before he had planned to abstain.
The Social Christian Party (PSC) will meet today before the plenary session to coordinate the selection and decision of the bloc. For the coordinator of the political shop, Henry Cucalón there are “serious people, capable” in all the short lists.
However, he left open the possibility that his organization may not necessarily choose the first of each list sent by the Executive. For its part, the Creo movement maintained a meeting with its maximum leader, Guillermo Lasso, on the afternoon of February 27 to decide on the vote.
Until the closure of this edition, the appointment did not end. The councilwoman of Cucalón, María Cristina Reyes, announced that they will not vote for people who were in the government or participated in the Alianza País (AP) movement. “If ethics would be lacking and at the moment that the country that is elected would be missing people with a recent correísta past who were part of a government that has done so much damage.
