In a session this Sunday, two days after the installation of the new parliament, the members of the assembly decided that the leadership of the rest of the 15 commissions would go to the Social Christian Party (PSC), which, with the RC and ADN, reached an agreement for greater parliamentary stability for the good of the country.
In particular, the RC will lead the Justice and State Structure commissions; autonomous governments; decentralization, competence, and territorial organization; transparency, citizen participation, and social control; and constitutional guarantees, human rights, collective rights, and interculturality.
Also, the political group, which has the largest bank, will direct delegations on Comprehensive Protection for Girls, Boys, and Adolescents and Oversight and Political Control. The latter is well argued because it highlights the processes of political trials of authorities.
Last Friday, Ecuador’s new National Assembly was installed after six months without a legislature due to the cross-death order by outgoing president Guillermo Lasso.
Assemblyman Henry Kronfle, of PSC, was elected as president of the Assembly, while Viviana Veloz, of RC, and Eckenner Recalde, of ADN, occupied the positions of first and second vice president, respectively.
Among the first parliamentary debates are two urgent economic laws that will be sent to the incoming ruler, Daniel Noboa, when he takes office, according to official legislator Valentina Centeno.
This National Assembly, elected in extraordinary and early elections, has a short term, until May 2025, to complete the period that began in 2021.
