Rafael Correa‘s government is promoting the Organic Law for the creation of the Council of Inequality, which will be discussed at the next National Assembly, said the Ecuadorian president during his weekly report.
Correa had a meeting earlier in the week where he presented the Organic Law of National Council for Equality, required in the country for a fair society. “We need a more equal society in the country, there are extreme differences in economics: extremely rich and extremely poor, we live in the most unequal and inequitable society in the world,” said Correa.
The president said the country has great injustices, “not only social, but regional, ethnic and gender”, because despite the establishment of equality between men and women, females were never allowed to participate in different fields.
“This law has 5 chapters, the important thing is that we are fighting hard to have a more equal country, fair, never extreme poverty in the midst of extreme wealth, never forgotten villages excluded, outraged as montubio, African, indigenous , no more discrimination against people with special needs, no more discrimination from the foreigner who has decided to live in our country. (…) All public policy must have the goal of equality. This is our best answer to such infamy that does not respect human rights, we are controlling the abuses of capitalism, the abuses of the wealthy, who always believed they are the owners of our country,” said Correa.
