    If he wins then Assange gets another 5 years of personal imprisonment. Only a new president will kick him out of the embassy.

    Following his leader Fidelito....??? Rafaelito also is trying to made himself another “democratic” dictator as Huguito, the probably failed Cristinita and Evito very soon....All of them the very face of the “democracy” as they understand oposition through parties or media, populist policies, poverty growth to keep the population clamped to the gvt. gifts, corruption, etc...more of what we have seen from years ago.....

    Excelent, Viva Correa! Looks like Assange's safety is assured unless Hague and co do something reckless, and they've alrteady backed down from that - now Correa and his government will surely outlast our own! And what a good example to Cristina, I hope she's watching and aware that she is no less deserving of a third mandate than him =)

    #1 Because Ecuador has already reformed its constitution, something Argentina should do to in my opinion (and my own country should get round to having one!)

    #2 None of his business, your right. But as a longtime admirer of your posts, I'd be interested to know what you think of the Cristina 2015 idea?

    #5 Cristinita is not “probably failed”, Seb (no ito for him I'm afraid) is almost definately failed though...

    This man is a disgrace to his country! His disdain for democracy and freedom of the press is evident on a daily basis. He is a populist who “buys” his support and has no respect for diplomacy - he has succeeded in the last eight years in making his country “pariah” state alongside his “compadre” Chávez. In all the years of his presidency he has failed totally as a statesman

    His interference into the Assange matter is a joke!
