Ecuador Election Official in Congress

Quito, Sep 18 (Prensa Latina) The president of Ecuador's Electoral Supreme Court (TSE), Jorge Acosta, appears in Congress Tuesday to give detailed information on the campaigns of candidates to the Constituent Assembly.

Acosta highlighted yesterday he is to explain actions dealing with the Law on Electoral Expense, billboards, and the Organic Law of Political Parties.

Similarly, he will inform on the State budget for the candidates' campaign, as well as the firms hired by the TSE to monitor publicity.

His appearance at Congress arouses expectations among congress people, some of whom question the participation, as citizen, of President Rafael Correa in the campaign of his movement "Alianza Pais."

Legislator Jhon Argudo, of "Izquierda Democratica," pointed out the TSE should recover its neutrality, and Correa should not be involved in publicity for his movement.

However, Acosta sustained there is no legislation preventing the chief of State from doing so.
