  • Description

    ECUADORIAN PRESIDENT DR. JOSE MARIA VELASCO IBARRA WAS SWORN-IN LAST SUNDAY (1 SEPTEMBER) IN A CEREMONY IN QUITO. IT IS DR. IBARRA'S FIFTH TIME TO HOLD THAT OFFICE.

    IN HIS INAUGURAL SPEECH, DR. IBARRA CALLED FOR THE DESTRUCTION OF ALL ARMS AND AN END TO BIG-POWER DOMINATION IN THE AFFAIRS OF OTHER NATIONS.

    LATIN AMERICAN COUNTRIES MUST UNITE TO SOLVE THE CONTINENT'S PROBLEMS, HE ADDED.

    THE PRESIDENT SPOKE TO CONGRESS AFTER BEING SWORN-IN AND RECEIVING THE PRESIDENTIAL SASH FROM OUTGOING PRESIDENT DR. OTTO AROSEMENA GOMEZ. IN HIS SPEECH, DR. IBARRA ALSO INDIRECTLY ATTACKED THE INTERVENTION IN CZECHOSLOVAKIA BY SAYING THAT POWERFUL FORCES STILL INVADED THE "WEAK AND UNDEFENDED NATIONS TO IMPOSE DOCTRINES THAT ONLY SERVED THE VICTORS".

    HE SUPPORTED POPE PAUL'S ENCYCLICAL BANNING ARTIFICIAL BIRTH CONTROL METHODS FOR ROMAN CATHOLICS AND SAID THE REAL PROBLEM WAS NOT IN CONTROLLING POPULATIONS BUT IN DEVELOPING FULLY EACH NATION'S POTENTIAL.

    OF DR. IBARRA'S FOUR PREVIOUS MANDATES AS PRESIDENT, HE MANAGED TO SERVE ONLY ONE COMPLETE TERM - FROM 1952 TO 1956. ON THE OTHER THREE OCCASIONS, HE WAS OVERTHROWN BY MILITARY COUPS AND HAS TWICE GONE INTO EXILE IN OTHER SOUTH AMERICAN COUNTRIES.
