With those who he would do the citizen’s revolution.
Alvaro Noboa stressed that the president is on bad terms with the entire political class, the middle class that now borders on poverty. “With the press. He prosecutes them, he threats them, he expropriates them and who knows what other abuses has suffered the press in this country,” he said.

“Lets keep together and brave…the indigenous, MPD, independent movements, the people who have suffered so much, police, teachers, all working together till end, so that the no option can succeed this Saturday.”
