The former president is leading a campaign for the "Nо" vote in a Feb. 4 referendum on constitutional reforms include a measure to prohibit indefinite re-election, a measure Correa created that allowed him to run for a second term.

Correa himself in 2008 commissioned a team of experts to study the country's prior debt operations. The experts concluded that several debt operations were "illegitimate," leading his government to declare a default. (Reporting by Alexandra Valencia, writing by Brian Ellsworth)
