Carlos Julio Arosemena Monroy

Politician from Ecuador

Carlos Julio Arosemena Monroy (24 August 1919 – 5 March 2004) served as Vice President of Ecuador and due to the ousting of President José María Velasco Ibarra, became President of Ecuador from 7 November 1961 to 11 July 1963. While in office, there were two failed attempts to impeach him. He was overthrown by a 1963 military junta after criticizing the US government and insulting Maurice Bernbaum, the US ambassador to Ecuador. He was also the son of former president Carlos Julio Arosemena Tola. His support of Fidel Castro’s revolution in Cuba caused an ongoing conflict with Congress and the military.[4] 4.
