The opposition political parties represented in the Assembly, have not been invited to any discussions with the Government. “Dialogue is not a marketing concept, but an attitude of respect for others. The government thinks it is in a campaign and it continues railing against the opposition,” said Henry Cucalón, Assemblyman of the Social-Christian Madera de Guerrero Party.
César Umajinga Legislator Pachakutik, also confirmed that his party is not included in the dialogue, which require talking with President Rafael Correa directly.
The opposition, made up of six parties, is a parliamentary minority. It got 29 of the 137 seats and its strongest political force is CREO with 11 legislators. Although it has its own electorate, it has not been taken into account to talk with the government.
In the legislature, the dialogue on inequality and social justice will be handled by the 12 standing committees, according to the regime Assemblyman Fausto Cayambe.
