Is the Government Stable?


Ecuador’s government has enjoyed growing stability during the 21st century. The stability of the government depends largely on the economy, which has improved significantly since the early 2000s.

Ecuador’s government has gone through long, tumultuous periods, most recently in the 1990s. The government follows the model of a representative democracy, although the president describes himself as a socialist. Currently, President Rafael Correa’s government has the support of a great number of Ecuadorians, given then economy’s recent growth.
