Ecuador's President Guillermo Lasso is due to appear before the National Assembly later on Tuesday as an impeachment trial against him starts.
Mr Lasso, 67, is accused of embezzlement, which he denies.
It is the second time the opposition-controlled National Assembly is trying to remove the president from office since he was sworn in in May 2021.
