Ecuadorian President takes distance from Chávez' socialism

El Universal, September 6, 2007

Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa Thursday said his 21st-Century socialism is different to that championed by Venezuelan ruler Hugo Chávez, and stressed that the Ecuadorian political blueprint is far from nationalizations, AFP reported.

"The socialism we want to implement in Ecuador must be different from Venezuela's, as we have different realities. Venezuelan socialism is different from Chile's," Correa told TV channel TC.

"The difference with the traditional socialism is that one can no longer believe in the fight of classes and nationalization of the means of production," said Correa, who is boosting a Constituent Assembly the members of which will be elected next September 30 to draft a new Constitution.
