OUR STAND ON THE IMPEACHMENT OF DILMA ROUSSEFF- GOVT OF ECUADOR
The Government of Ecuador condemns the political events that have occurred in the Federative Republic of Brazil, which in recent hours have resulted in the impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff.
We discourage the blatant subversion of democratic order in Brazil, that we consider an overlapping coup d’état. Political opponents and other opposition forces conspired against the democracy to destabilize the government and remove President Dilma Rousseff from office illegitimately.
The spurious procedure of dismissal carried out by the legislative body, which culminated in the decision of her removal, failed to meet the fundamental requirement of proving that the President has committed crimes accused of.
We cannot ignore the fact that a significant number of decision makers in the process of political trial against the President are under investigation for acts of corruption.
In the face of this painful event, the Government of Ecuador has decided to recall for consultations to its charge d'affaires to the Federative Republic of Brazil.
This unfortunate event is unacceptable in the XXI (21) century, and poses a serious threat to the stability of our region and constitute a grave setback in the consolidation of the democracy that so much effort and sacrifice has meant to our people.
