What are you talking about? Uribe tried to get elected more than two Terms but Colombians like Ecuadorians knew better. It’s funny you mentioned Correa because uribe did exactly what Correa did.

Criminal uribe is claiming president Santos is against him. What a loser criminal uribe is.

Equator was considered an "hybrid regime" during Correa's presidency. It means it had features of both a democracy and a dictatorship. It was just until this year that it was upgraded to "flawed democracy", according to the Democracy Index.

Colombia has been considered "flawed democracy" since the first publication of the index, and the country's score improved from 2006 to 2010.

Correa was a much more authoritarian person than Uribe.

Both were authoritarian and tried to limit the press. At least Correa is not accused of being behind several murders and even mass killings like Uribe is.

Uribe never tried to limit the press, what are you talking about? And he isn't being accused of any murder or anything similar, keep dreaming.


Also, Correa is accused of kidnapping and torture, if I'm not mistaken. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-e...-idUSKBN1JT2VF
