The referendum proposed by the Government starts walking. Yesterday the Commission of Admission of the Constitutional Court (CC) took the first step.
Judges Wendy Molina, Ruth Seni and Tatiana Ordeñana, accepted the seven questions proposed by President Lenin Moreno for a preliminary ruling.
The judges noted that the approaches met the requirements for their submission and proceeded to admit them. The session lasted several hours.
