In August of 1988, the then president of the Republic, Rodrigo Borja, appointed her governor of Guayas. He took office, but resigned three weeks later.
Now Juana Vallejo Klaere returns to this function. This was stated before the media of Guayaquil. By Friday, August 31, it is expected that her appointment will be officially announced at an event in the Guayas Governorate at 3:00 pm, replacing José Francisco Cevallos.
On Wednesday, August 29, Vallejo gave brief statements at the José Joaquín de Olmedo airport. “Today (Wednesday) I had the honor of being in the Presidency of the Republic, talking with the President and accepting her appointment as governor. I think it is a clear example of the ‘departization’ of the exercise of the Government.”
Vallejo promised that she will lead an “Interior of open doors for all.” She stressed that the security issue will be one of his priorities as soon as he takes office and that we must give continuity to good things and improve others.
Vallejo has held other public positions in her career, and served as Minister of Tourism in the government of interim President Fabián Alarcón, as well as an Andean parliamentarian for the Social Christian Party (PSC), between 2003 and 2007. After that, she was nominated as a candidate for the Constituent Assembly for the National Concertation movement, but did not get enough votes, its incursion into politics occurred when it was a candidate for the ID for the Mayor of Guayaquil, but lost the elections to Elsa Bucaram Ortiz (PRE) known on television through the educational space “The Right Word.”
It is estimated that Cevallos now devotes his efforts to the political campaign for the Prefecture of Guayas. Although he has not formalized his candidacy, Cevallos has already had rapprochements with Jimmy Jairala (from Centro Democrático) and Gustavo Larrea (from Democracia Sí) to consolidate an electoral front by 2019.
