IAPA says it's 'positive' that Ecuadoran president wants to repeal current 'gag law'

"The Inter-American Press Association (IAPA) called it 'positive,' that the new president of Ecuador, Guillermo Lasso, sent to the National Assembly a project that seeks to repeal the Communication Law of 2013, considered a 'gag law.'
