The fate of Lasso is in the hands of the Constitutional Court
By Sebastian Mantilla, political analyst. Director of the Center for Latin American Political Studies (CELAEP)
The Congress invokes article 129 of the Constitution, which says that the National Assembly can call the president to impeach in three cases: crimes against public security, crimes of corruption, the environment, embezzlement and illegal enrichment and crimes of genocide, torture, etc.
Thus, according to the report of the National Assembly, the president had committed crimes against public security and crimes against public administrat
In June 2022, Lasso was tried to prosecute using Article 130 of the Constitution, due to a serious political crisis and internal turmoil. I tried to complain about this matter.
On this occasion the votes did not remove him, while the Christian Social Party played a key role in the National Assembly to save Lasso. But now after the local elections and after the words of the president against that party, leader Jaime Nebot, they had very strong words against the president. Therefore, the necessary votes on impeachment and dismissal would be today.
But the matter is somewhat complicated for the promoters of the political trial, since the Assembly must have a decision of admission from the Constitutional Court. There are examples in which the said court has decided in favor of the Government some sensitive issues for the Executive. Perhaps that is where the accusation will stop.
However, it should also be noted that when the National Assembly demanded the impeachment of former Vice President Jorge Glass, the Constitutional Court ruled in favor of his impeachment.
On the other hand, in Ecuador it is possible for the president to promote the death of the cross, that is to preside over the Assembly and ask for its closure. In that case, Lasso would govern for six months by decree and must call general elections.
In short, Mr. Lasso is in a difficult situation. It must be taken into account that this Wednesday is the first time a native has called against the president. If the prosecution does not work, it is possible that social, political and indigenous mobilizations will lead to various cases and he will stop reporting.
