Abad, who was appointed by President Daniel Noboa as an Ambassador for Peace to work from Tel Aviv, Israel, on behalf of Ecuador, expressed her dissatisfaction with her assignment, which she likened to being dispatched to a warfront. While the 47-year-old entrepreneur, activist, and politician plans to fulfill her delegated duties, she highlighted the political chasm that her absence at official events has underscored.

Political Rift and Discontent

Abad pointed out her discontent with the President's team, claiming they have denied her a personal agenda and told her to stay silent. She revealed a disagreement with the officialism's alliance with the 'correismo' in the Legislative. The Vice President stressed that she has not privately met with President Noboa since before they took office. This absence of private interaction has further deepened the political divide.

Defying Gender Stereotypes

Coming from Cuenca, Ecuador, Abad emphasized her 24-year-long professional career. She believes she has faced political violence due to her gender and suggested that her dynamics with the President would differ if she were not a woman. These comments shed light on the underlying gender biases that persist in the corridors of power.

Fulfillment of Delegated Duties

Despite her dissatisfaction with being assigned a single function, Abad intends to assume the delegated duties to avoid dismissal for abandoning her post. She confirmed her commitment to her responsibilities as an Ambassador for Peace. However, she did not provide a specific date for her travel to Israel, stating it depends on receiving formal responses and analyses by November 30.

The interview with Infobae unveiled the political rift and discontent within the Ecuadorian administration. It highlighted the Vice President's perspective and her resolve to carry out her duties, irrespective of the challenges.
