Ecuador's Scapegoat

Public acceptance of Ecuador President Alfredo Palacio is at 43%, from 63% at the start of his period. The administration credibility is at 34%. At the same time Palacio announced a purge to get rid of “Gutierrismo” traces in the executive. Local observers are accusing Palacio of making of “Gutierrismo” a scapegoat to justify his failures.

Black lists, forced resignations and arbitrary decisions were Gutierres’s trademark. Palacios is following his footsteps. Don’t be surprised if he lives the same fate.
