The past alliance between the movement Creando Oportunidades (CREO), the Partido Social Cristiano (PSC) and Madera de Guerrero (MG), which had been formed to have a larger opposition to the current regime, from now on will only be limited to mutual agreements in the National Assembly, “when the opportunity to do so, presents itself”, but not under any covenant, as indicated by the presidents of these political groups.
Of the 37 non-government seats for the New National Assembly CREO movement had nine seats, plus the two in partnership with the PSC (Luis Fernando Torres of Tungurahua and Johnny Teran, of Los Rios). While the PSC won six seats, but has eight, with the previously mentioned elected assembly members.
For his part, the national chairman of the PSC, Pascual Del Cioppo, insists that Torres and Teran, who won their seats in alliance with CREO, will be only PSC representatives.
Cesar Monge, president of CREO, said that a future alliance with the PSC has not been ruled out or confirmed, but for now, his group is more focused on developing a work plan at provincial and district levels with a view to the sectional elections of 2014.
Del Cioppo also said that his party will focus on working with the provincial leadership to define the candidates to be postulated for the sectionals.
