OAS Agrees Ecuador Assembly Strong Idea

Quito, Aug 1 (Prensa Latina) Organization of American States General Secretary Jose Miguel Insulza ratified his opinion on Wednesday that Ecuador will be stronger after the Constituent Assembly is established.

In his second and last day visiting Quito, Insulza reiterated that democracy will be stronger with the Constituent Assembly, although he called to respect the rules of the game and avoid violence.

He said Ecuadorians "will face a complicated electoral process, due to the number of candidates, the ballot paper size, and the vote count."

The top OAS leader talked on Tuesday with national Congress President Jorge Cevallos, and head of the Supreme Electoral Tribunal Jorge Acosta, with whom he signed a technical advisory agreement.

Insulza promised to provide the necessary technical assistance for the September 30 elections, in which the 130 members of the Constituent Assembly will be elected.
