The field of legislative action disengages some assembly members. They see better days in mayorships and prefectures. Therefore, at least six would be contemplating the possibility of being on the ballot in February of next year.
At the moment, some parties and political movements have almost defined the nominations, while others await the decisions of the conventions of the groups and the proposals of the bases. All, without leaving aside the surveys that run in each of their jurisdictions to know what is the acceptance they have.
The work that can be done from the sectional governments is also valued. There is a coinciding position: the premises are more executive entities, while in the Assembly there are many obstacles and for “more that things are done, they are not reflected in the citizenship“.
“It is a more executive opportunity, because being an authority of the Mayor’s Office or of the Prefecture, decisions are made in favor of the city, of the community. In the Assembly, it is very difficult, in the midst of 137 assembly members, to reach a consensus on the proposals presented, “said Assemblyman Jorge Yunda (PAIS). His name sounds for Mayor of Quito.
For Jeannine Cruz (CREO) this is also due to the fact that the Assembly is going at a slow pace. “Although the effort has been made to change the pace and claim the work of the Assembly, people do not trust the Assembly because they see the partisan interests, an example is the position of morenistas and correístas that have not allowed to advance and that allow it to be the space where citizens feel represented, “he said.
She, however, gains strength for the Mayor of Loja.
Newspaper EXPRESO spoke with several coordinators of the caucuses on the transition from the Assembly to the local government. The Social Christian Party – Madero de Guerrero (PSC-MG) is the group with the most assembly candidates in mind for the sectional.
Henry Cucalón, coordinator of the PSC-MG, affirmed that there are several legislators that analyze this possibility. Among these are: Luis Fernando Torres, Roberta Zambrano, Maura Montaño, Paco Assan and César Rohón.”But this will be seen soon,” he said.
From the CREO movement, Roberto Gómez only confirmed Rómulo Minchala as a candidate for Mayor of Milagro. “They can come out more, but I do not have accurate information.” However it is known that Esteban Bernal would want the Mayor’s Office of Cuenca.
In the PAIS block there was no response but, so far, Yunda is a name to consider. In addition, Johanna Cedeño for the Prefecture of Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas; Lenin Plaza to the Prefecture of Esmeraldas; among others.
The only block that would not have candidates for the sectionals would be the Citizen Revolution or so-called Correistas. The coordinator Juan Carlos Lloret confirmed it to EXPRESO. He assured that the assembly members that make up the bench (29) will remain in the Assembly “defending the project initiated by former President Rafael Correa,” sentenced the Assemblyman. (I)
