Policy: Noboa was installed in November, after promising to turn around a development that has led to murder and other crime.

The state of emergency applies to the provinces of El Oro, Guayas, Los Rios, Manabi and Santa Elena – and for 60 days.

The police and military are to be deployed in the provinces due to “the need to carry out tactical combat operations against organized armed groups”, according to the regulation.
