Vela’s resignation was made amidst strong criticism of her administration, initiated on July 14, 2021, in the midst of the crisis registered in the prison system and the increase of insecurity at national level, which has not been controlled.

When announcing her decision, Vela stated that she does not agree with the political line established by President, Guillermo Lasso, to face the crisis worsened by the National Assembly and added: “preserving democracy to transform the country requires applying the mechanism of cross death”, a possibility rejected by the dignitary.

Among her last activities was the presentation of an action of unconstitutionality before the Constitutional Court, yesterday morning, against the resolution of amnesties to 268 citizens, most of them social fighters, approved by the National Assembly on March 10. In the afternoon, a press conference was scheduled to be held by the former head of the National Assembly on current political issues, which was unexpectedly suspended.

On the other hand, Jijon, who took office on October 21, 2021, announced his resignation on his Twitter account.

Both politicians left their posts in the midst of disagreements between the executive and the Parliament, exacerbated by the rejection by the legislative plenary of the Investment Attraction Bill, presented by the national government as an urgent economic bill.

It is expected that their substitutes will be made official during this day.
