The national electoral Council (CNE) of Ecuador has suspended Sunday Fuerza Compromiso Social, the political party loyal to ex-president Rafael Correa (2007-2017), which may not participate in the presidential and legislative elections of 2021.
The instance has responded favourably to a request of the Controller general of the State, who observed irregularities in the registration procedure of the party and three others, also suspended.
Mr. Correa denounced on Twitter as a ” masquerade law “.
The former head of State, who lives in exile in Belgium, has recently been sentenced in absentia to eight years in prison for corruption. He says she is the victim of political persecution of Lenin Moreno, his successor, and who was his ally and vice-president.
