Correa: mediocrity and corruption are enemies of the revolution
Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro and his Ecuadorian counterpart are to review the bilateral agenda on energy, the economy, culture, and social issues
As noted by Correa, his visit to Venezuela aimed at talking about efficiency and efficacy to "push forward the projects of our people."
For his part, Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, who welcomed the Ecuadorian leader, explained that he and Correa would review the bilateral agenda on energy, trade, culture, investment and production economy, and social issues.
Before making their public statements, the two leaders paid a tribute to late Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, whose birthday was commemorated on July 28.
Pablo Jiménez Guaricuco was summarily dismissed from his Clerk III job at the Autonomous Service of Public Registries and Notaries' Offices (Saren). He read a notice published in a newspaper on November 5 informing the public that he was no longer employed to the Saren. He was sacked despite the fact that he was taking a leave of absence from work due to a work-related accident, and that he enjoyed security of employment under the parental job-immunity privilege. Most probably, the decision was influenced by his role as a union organizer. But what did he do, besides leading protests, to deserve the sack? Well, he allegedly sent off a series of tweets that definitely hurt the sensitivity of the Saren Directorate.
