Yhis is na country which has been for a long time, ripe for this type of change. I feel the man should be given the opportunity to at least implement his policy's and see how the general population of Ecaudor will be affected. Having lived in Ecuador myself, I do have some understanding as to why the change in course for the country. The elite of Ecuador have used their positions in the past, not to help their fellow countrymen but to personally enrich themselves, as proven by the fact that every president that has ever served, has left the presidency not only as millionaires but multi-milionaires, from the blatant thievery commited by these supposed politicians. I'm glad that someone has finally come to power that can put their house in order (I just hope that this time around it's the real thing). There is nothing wrong with Socialism mixed with Capitalism if you really think about it, the mixture of the two is about as perfect a government as one can hope for. Thank you
