This new plan, according to President Correa, not only aims at intimidating, but also putting an end to progressive governments in the region.

“The right-wing is seeking revenge because it has been more than 10 years since the last time they were able to just pick up a phone and tell a sitting President what to do,” Correa said in a press release on Friday.
