National Assemblywoman Gabriela Rivadeneira said Friday that members of the Alianza País (AP) loyal to former president Rafael Correa have plans to form a new political party.

“We’re coming to a new year and it might be time for a new party,” she said at a Quito news conference. “It will be called the Citizens’ Revolution.”

Rivadeneira says a decision to break away from AP depends on a ruling by the Elections Dispute Tribunal (TCE). If the tribunal upholds a decision by the National Electoral Council (CNE) giving control of AP to President Lenin Moreno and his supporters, Rivadeneira says she and other Correa loyalists will go their own way.

“Considering what the CNE has already done, we are prepared that the tribunal will continue to block the political rights of legitimate AP leadership,” she said. “If that is the case, we will begin immediately forming a new organization that will represent the true meaning of Rafael Correa’s citizens’ revolution.”

Although no date has been set by TCE to hear the Correista appeal, it is expected in early January.
