Ecuador: Court Declines Expulsion Ruling

Stratfor, March 13, 2007
Ecuador's Constitutional Tribunal on March 13 rejected a request to rule on the constitutionality of the Supreme Electoral Tribunal's decision to expel 57 legislators from the National Congress. The Constitutional Tribunal said the expelled members' request for a ruling lacked the support of a majority of the National Congress. Tribunal President Santiago Velazquez ruled that the expelled members can appeal the ruling or file a new complaint with the Constitutional Tribunal once they have the necessary support from congress.
