Due to the decision of the National Electoral Council, Correa party will not be able to participate in the upcoming presidential elections in Ecuador in 2021.

Correa noted that his party is "the main political force in Ecuador", last year it received millions of votes.

“In what democracy is it possible to exclude the country's main political force 7 months before the elections to be held on February 7, 2021? Three other parties are just for diversion, together they will not gain even 5% of the vote, while we have 30%, ”he said.

According to him, the exclusion of his party from the elections is "pre-election machinations, violation of constitutional norms and dictatorship." 

Correa added that the Power of Social Interaction will apply to all possible authorities in Ecuador and is already sending appeals to international organizations.

“But this is all politics. As soon as the political situation changes, everything else will change, ”he said.

In November 2019, Correa called RT's cutoff from broadcasting in Ecuador censorship.
