The national electoral Council of Ecuador rejected the registration of the new party of ex-President Rafael Correa.

According to the channel Globovision, the Board found the alleged violations and failure to comply with the requirements for registration of claims.

The party was to be called «Civic revolution», and this motto is being used by another political force — the «Alianza país», founded in 2006 by the same Correa. On Tuesday, Correa wrote a letter of withdrawal from the ruling party in disagreement with the actions of his successor as President Lenin Moreno.

«The national electoral Council yesterday also refused to use the name «Civil revolution», arguing that the fact that the motto uses a different political movement. This is another legal inhumanity, when we don’t register neither the name nor the motto. How long,» Correa wrote in his microblog on Twitter.

Moreno, who became a candidate in the last election from the «Alianza país», has long been the ally of Correa, who was in power since 2007. From 2007 to 2013, Moreno was Vice President of the country. To work in this position, Moreno did not prevent even a wheelchair, to which he was confined since 1998, when injured as the result of the attempted robbery. He is the first person with disabilities to the post of head of Ecuador.
