The Miami Herald writes about the tension between Ecuador President Rafael Correa and his brother Fabricio. It goes into detail about how the falling out began, and according to the Miami Herald, Fabricio is strongly considering a bid to challenge his brother for the presidency of Ecuador in 2012.
One of the hemisphere’s fiercest sibling rivalries might get played out on a national stage.
Fabricio Correa — the brash older brother of Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa — says he’ll take on his hermanito at the ballot box in 2012, unless a more viable opposition candidate comes along.
If he makes good on the threat, it’s likely to produce a nasty and memorable presidential race in a region known for its political theater.
