Arosemena Monroy, Carlos Julio, 1919-2004, president of Ecuador (1961-63). A lawyer and diplomat and the son and grandson of former presidents, he became vice president in 1960 and acceded to the presidency upon the ouster of President Velasco Ibarra. He continued the austerity program begun under his predecessor and restored a favorable trade balance. Although he was criticized for his leftist leanings, real opposition to him arose from his immoderate drinking. After two unsuccessful attempts to impeach him, he was overthrown by a military junta.
