All members of the Ecuadorean presidential cabinet have tendered their resignations to president Rafael Correa on Monday, presidential secretary Alexis Mera announced, explaining that it was Correa himself who had asked for them to do so.

However, he clarified that he hasn’t received any instructions or orders to remove any of the ministers. 

“I have personally tendered my resignation to the president this past Friday. All of us in the cabinet have our resignation papers in our pockets,” he added.

Unofficially, several media outlets in the country have said that Health Minister David Chiriboga’s resignation has already been accepted.

Chiriboga had to face to public health emergencies in the last few months after a measles outbreak and the deaths of over 50 people who had ingested adulterated alcohol. 

Also, a replacement for Production Minister Natalhie Cely, who was accepted by the Obama administration as the new Ecuadorean ambassador to the US, has yet to be appointed.

Correa’s cabinet is composed of 28 officials, eight of them coordination ministers and nine of them secretaries.
