Ecuador has become a critical front in the battle against criminal groups in Latin America. The country’s 36-year-old president, Daniel Noboa, has tried to exert authority by arresting thousands of people, pushing for a ‘war tax’ and calling for a referendum on security matters. Can he succeed? And how is the political landscape likely to evolve in the coming months? Our guest today is Maria Teresa Escobar, a journalist based in Quito. Currently a freelancer, she is one of the founders of the Ecuadorean news website Primicias.
