Ecuador Executive, House at Odds

Quito, Sep 7 (Prensa Latina) The Ecuadorian government's proposal to create a Codification Commission to annul about 5,000 obsolete laws is causing uneasiness in Congress.

The commission, to be created through presidential decree next week, aims to bring order to "the country's political chaos," affirmed Gustavo Vega, president of the National Higher Education Council (CONESUP).

Vega stressed that the initiative, which has upset Parliament President Jorge Cevallos, is not a subversive plan against the House.

Parliamentarian spokespersons indicated several deputies have rated the proposal as positive, but sustained it is the responsibility of Congress to approve or abolish laws.

The function of the Commission would be to provide the country with an "updated, coordinated legislative system," Vega highlighted.
