On 8 January 2024, Ecuadorian President Daniel Noboa declared a state of exception (akin to a state of emergency and sometimes translated as "state of emergency") for 60 days after a prominent gang leader escaped from prison (US News & World Report, MercoPress, Constitution of Ecuador, see Articles 164-166). Violence broke out across the country soon after the declaration (El Universo [in Spanish], France 24). If the decree is canceled or repealed, the question would close "No."
