The speech by the Secretaries of State is the only point of the 781st session of the Legislative meeting, which in these days also accepted an impeachment request of President Guillermo Lasso.

The call to the two ministers is in compliance with a resolution approved by most of the parliamentarians, which ordered the presence of both authorities within 48 hours.

The issue will be under discussion amid the tense situation the country is experiencing, where thousands of members of the Confederation of Indigenous Nationalities of Ecuador (CONAIE) and other social sectors are carrying out a protest for an indefinite period of time.

The repression exercised by the police and the army against the protesters and acts of vandalism by infiltrated groups in the protests overshadowed the de facto measure of the popular sectors and caused at least five deaths, more than 100 injured and dozens of detainees.

The agenda on the table includes issues such as the reduction of fuel prices and the cost of the basic food basket, increased budget for health and education, attention to agriculture, debt moratorium, as well as prohibiting the privatization of strategic sectors and illegal mining in protected areas.
