Subnational authorities prohibited the diffusion of political spots with his image in Pichincha.
Pichincha province's electoral authorities on Tuesday ordered the "immediate suspension" of the Union for Hope (UNES) alliance's electoral publicity because it included ex-President Rafael Correa's speeches.
However, UNES candidate for the Andean parliament Virgilio Hernandez defended Correa's participation in the electoral campaign, pointing out that he did not lose his civil rights.
Having received several complaints, the National Electoral Council (CNE) President Diana Atamaint ordered a report to determine the legal limits for a citizen deprived of political rights to participate in electoral campaigns.
On January 16 and 17, the CNE will hold a mandatory presidential debate among the 16 candidates registered to contest February 7 election.
