Ecuador's Correa slams court ruling as "shameless"

QUITO, April 23 (Reuters) - Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa on Monday condemned a court ruling to reinstate 50 fired lawmakers, saying a “shameless deal” had been struck.

His comments, broadcast by Ecuadorean television, stopped short of rejecting the ruling by the country’s top court but risk inflaming tensions between the leftist president and an unpopular Congress in the volatile Andean state.
