Democracy in Latin America – Stabroek News Editorial

Date: Apr 25, 2014

Now, Ecuadorians are faced with the result of having rejected the ‘personalist’ politics of the past with a new cult of ‘personalism’ embodied by the increasing authoritarianism of President Correa.

All this leads to his conclusion that this is “the greatest democratic failure in South America.”
