The tragic murder of Brigitte García, a young mayor in Ecuador, has added to the wave of political violence that has been occurring in the country. At just 27 years old, García was the youngest mayor in Ecuador until her death this past Sunday along with one of her collaborators.

The news of her death has shaken the political community, with former president Rafael Correa expressing his disbelief and sadness on social media. The authorities have not yet provided any information on the possible motive or perpetrators of the crime.

García belonged to the Citizen Revolution movement led by Correa, and took office in May. The police commander of Manabí stated that she had not requested police protection and did not have a safety device. This highlights the need for better protection measures for political figures in Ecuador.

The Association of Municipalities of Ecuador pointed out that at least 35 mayors have been threatened, emphasizing the dangerous situation facing political leaders in the country. This is not an isolated case as other political figures have also been targeted by violence in recent years.

The country continues to grapple with political unrest and insecurity, affecting both authorities and civilians. The government of Ecuador has condemned the murder and promised to do everything possible to find those responsible. It remains to be seen what impact this tragedy will have on the future of politics in Ecuador, but it is clear that more needs to be done to protect those who are vulnerable to violence and intimidation.
