Ecuador history


Salinas beach, Ecuadorian girlAbdala Bucaram is the worst president ever in the history of this small nation. Corruption was his trade mark and quite frankly he was an embarrassment for the entire nation.

Dr. Rosalia Arteaga was elected "Interim President" by Congress with the blessing of the armed forces of Ecuador under the leadership of General Paco Moncayo, a man considered a national hero of the Cenepa military campaign .

Fabian Alarcon 1997 - 1998 is elected "Interim President" by Congress until 1998. In 1998 Jamil Mahuad is elected as President of Ecuador during 1998-2002. Jamil Mahuad and Fijimori's Peruvian President has signed the peace in 1998.

On January 21, 2000, during demonstrations in Quito by indigenous groups, the military and police refused to enforce public order. Demonstrators entered the National Assembly building and declared a three-person "junta" in charge of the country. Field-grade military officers declared their support for the concept. During a night of confusion and negotiations, President Mahuad was obliged to flee the presidential palace. Vice President Gustavo Noboa took charge; Mahuad went on national television in the morning to endorse Noboa as his successor.

The Republic of Ecuador

This was the same Gutierrez who had led the coup against Mahuad in January 2000: his party is named after the date of the action. Simultaneous national assembly elections returned a coalition government led by center-leftist Alfredo Palacio.

The rise of Gutierrez has inevitably drawn comparisons with South America’s other left-wing populist leader, Hugo Chavez of Venezuela.

But the more cautious Gutierrez is not keen to promote the connection and there are significant differences in the approaches and policies of the two leaders. continues...
