The Transparency and Anti-Corruption Front met with about 30 institutional representatives and citizens since its inception (June 5). The nine members of the front currently work on a proposal of actions, which will be presented to President Lenin Moreno in two weeks.
In their view, they must work in particular sectors. For example, legal reforms on public procurement, the implementation of values education with the support of universities.
On the Council of Citizen Participation and Social Control (Cpccs), Minister of Justice Rosana Alvarado said that an analysis of its operation was made.
But she warned that any suggestion should be discussed first with the President because if it goes beyond a legal reform, a referendum would be required.
Minister Alvarado indicated that there had not been a discussion yet on the issues that would cover that referendum. And if this option is chosen, she will support it. The Front presented a five-axis plan to the President: corruption in the public sector, fight against impunity, corruption in the private sector, promotion of transparency as a government policy and values education.
