Former President Rafael Correa had already reported a plot to prevent his participation in the 2021 elections.
Ecuador’s former President Rafael Correa Tuesday denounced that the Executive branch is exerting pressure to prevent the Social Commitment Force (SCF) party from participating in the upcoming elections.
He said that the Comptroller General Pablo Celi and Interior Minister Maria Paula Romo pressured the National Electoral Council (CNE) to remove the SCF party from the register of political organizations authorized to participate in the 2021 electoral process.
“We are getting robbed again. CNE gave in to Celi, Romo, and the government’s pressures. Now the SCF party will be illegally and untimely eliminated,” the former president tweeted.
Last month, Correa also denounced a plot to prevent his participation in the 2021 general elections.
In Ecuador, there is profound disappointment with Lenín Moreno.
And with elections in February, "hopefully some messianic figure doesn't show up trying to capitalize on all the discontent there is right now," writes @Sory_Constante in the NYT. https://t.co/HwQVpY3cOa
