Alianza PAIS Seeks to Ease Tensions in Ecuador’s Government

The decision of Alianza PAIS to set up a commission to ease tensions within the government of Ecuador marks a new stage in the political situation of this country.

The mediator group, made up of the executive secretary of the party Gabriela Rivadeneira and the presidential adviser Ricardo Patiño, seeks to bring President Lenin Moreno and Vice President Jorge Glas closer together.

The willingness of this commission to hold talks with senior leaders of Alianza PAIS was highlighted during the meeting held yesterday at the headquarters of this party in Quito, seeking to achieve internal reconciliation and calm members.

The differences amid senior leaders of the government reached its highest point on August 3rd, when President Moreno signed a decree that removed all the special functions given to vice President Glas.

The presidential decree did not remove Glas from his post but put an end to his responsibilities as head of the Sectorial Council of Production and the Committee for the Reconstruction of the areas damaged by the earthquake of April 2016.

The decree signed by Moreno followed Glas’ statement posted on social networks and the official website of the vice presidency in which he expressed his differences with the measures and policies taken by Moreno.

In his statements he referred to President Moreno’s agreements with some figures of the opposition such as the Bucaram family and the services paid to institutions and people linked to the ‘dark past of the country’ within the framework of the so-called National Dialogue.
