We celebrate democracy
After the possession of Jaime Roldós Aguilera in 1979, this August 10 marks the 40th anniversary of the return to democracy in Ecuador and Rosalía Arteaga, former president and former vice president of the Republic, was invited to be a speaker at national events.
The first was organized by the National Assembly on August 5, which was attended by more than 300 people. 'Lessons learned from institutional reform in Ecuador: 40 years in perspective' was the title of his keynote address, in which Arteaga pointed out that "a people with collective amnesia tends to repeat mistakes", therefore, the history of the country.
Then, on August 6, he went to the Ecotec University, in Guayaquil, to take part in the academic sessions organized by the study center, regarding the date. "The best vaccine against corruption is education," he said in the panel shared with former president Gustavo Noboa Bejarano, in which they discussed their experiences as presidents and the political projection of the nation.
FIDAL is proud that its current executive president writes the history of Ecuador, not only from the civic opportunity to serve Ecuador as first president and other public offices, but from the daily activities in favor of youth, democracy, education and environment.
