Ecuador Correa Aces First Month

Quito, Feb 15 (Prensa Latina) On his first 30 days in office, Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa excels in leading changes towards replacing the neoliberal model.

Correa cropped greater prestige with the Human Development and Housing bonuses and approval of a vote on the Constituency Assembly.

The polling company Cedatos rates Correa s popularity at 73 percent, 18 percent over the November 26 runoffs, and highest in Ecuadorian democracy since 1979.

The numbers also show rocketing credibility by 68 percent and 67 percent approval to the cabinet.

Cedatos polls rates Congressional rejection by 68 percent and a mere 13 percent approval.

Political circles owe Correa s popularity to the fact that, unlike previous government, he is honoring campaign promises by supporting underpriviliged sectors.
