Christian Science Monitor – Opinion – Democracy’s demise in Latin America: Ecuador on brink of a ‘perfect dictatorship’

Date: May 4, 2011

The author of this piece writes about his concern over what he sees as Ecuador President Rafael Correa’s “grab for absolute power.”

If voters approve Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa’s proposals in the May 7 referendum vote, he will be allowed to designate judges and magistrates, and the remaining independent media will come under his authority. He will have established a ‘perfect dictatorship’ in Ecuador.
