Shortly after completing a year of functions, the opposition will insist on their own projects, although the legislative agenda for the next 12 months, agreed between the legislative bloc of PAIS and the Executive, leaves out more than one dozen of projects presented by several assemblymen of this sector.
Faced with this panorama, Mae Montaño, legislator of the movement creating opportunities (CREO), says that in this first year of the new period, of the total number of laws adopted, 60% corresponds to sent by the Executive while the rest came from public institutions or the ruling party. While the projects presenting by his party none has reached the plenum to be discussed.
Cynthia Viteri, of the Social Christian Party, said that the PAIS movement marks the agenda arbitrarily based on the number of legislators. “The exclusion is from hundreds of thousands of Ecuadorians and not a block of opposition,” said.
The legislator exroldosista and now independent, Abdalá Bucaram Pulley, considered that the legislature “has lost all shame and flushing. The Assembly members of PAIS have returned us to the old Ecuador of the give-and-take asking for quotas of power to keep backing to its master”.
Ramiro Aguilar, exmilitante of SUMA and now independent, argues that the situation should not be frightened.
