Former Ecuadorean President Correa campaigns against term limits

8 January 2018

The Former President of Ecuador campaigned yesterday against a February referendum that would impose term limits. The referendum would repeal a Constitutional amendment that Correa backed while president. Supporters of Correa claim the referendum is meant to prevent Correa from running in the 2021 presidential election. It puts seven initiatives before voters, including one that would ban public officials convicted of corruption from running for public office.
