Correa: Ecuador/Bolivia Opp in Tandem

Correa: Ecuador/Bolivia Opp in Tandem
Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa
Quito, Jan 30 (Prensa Latina) Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa said on Wednesday that the Ecuadorean and Bolivian opposition are in permanent touch with each other and have the same separatist strategy.

There exists one plan of the separatist Ecuador Guayaquil oligarchy and that in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, to forge the defeat here of the new Constitution in the referendum and also destroy the government of Evo Morales, the president declared.

In remarks to Radio Cristal, Correa said these oligarchs are represented by the Social Christian Guayaquil Mayor Jaime Nebot, who defends the outdated partycracy model.

That system is falling to pieces, but the economic powers do not want to lose the privileges they have had for decades, he noted.

During his radio program on Saturday, Correa said "the oligarchy in Guayaquil and that in Santa Cruz have even signed agreements to turn these regions into autonomies, which in fact is separatism.

He stressed that his government wants to change the current situation, generate employment and fairly distribute the country's wealth; and so it is facing the oligarchy's opposition.
