The Ecuadorian Radical Liberal Party.

Is a liberal party in Ecuador and is one of the oldest existing political parties in EcuadorThe party evolved out of divisions between moderate and radical liberals in the Liberal Party of Ecuador. As in many Latin American countries, Ecuador has experienced much conflict, often violent, between the Liberal andConservative parties.Eloy Alfarobrought the Liberal Party to power during the revolution of 1895. In 1925, the Liberal Party was officially founded as the Ecuadorian Radical Liberal Party.

Over the next 50 years several of its members served as presidents of Ecuador.The party was in power from 1895 to 1911, from 1921 to 1952 and from 1960 to 1970. During each period of power the party was overthrown by military coups. In 2002, the PLRE participated in the presidential elections, with the party's candidate,Ivonne Juez de Baki, receiving 1.77% of the vote. However, as the party was unable to fulfill the necessary 5% of votes required to remain a valid political entity, the PLRE ceased to officially exist.

Nonetheless, the PLRE retains recognition for its important role in Ecuadorian history and has reputedly inspired several other political parties. Similarly, the PLRE's founding leader, Eloy Alfaro, is still widely revered in Ecuador.In 2008, a political party with the same name was registered for the 2009 presidential elections.

The end of the revolutionGarca Morenos conservative reign arguably gave the Roman Catholic Church more power in Ecuador during the nineteenth century than it had in any other country in the world.

Alfaro was the contradistinction of Moreno, and their differences were further accentuated by their historical juxtaposition.

Ecuador suffered a bloody civil war in which Catholic Church regularly urged its faithful masses to rise in rebellion against the Liberals.

A prolonged war was avoided largely because of the efforts of Catholic Archbishop Federico Gonzlez Surez, who urged the Church stay out of politics.

Ecuadors political situation remained tumultuous even after the defeat of the conservatives, as a result of political infighting within the PLR.

Most remember Alfaro as the central figure in the Liberal Revolution, though, in reality, he grudgingly shared control of the PLR with General Lenidas Plaza Gutirrez and the two vied for the partys leadership until Alfaros death at the hands of a Plaza-instigated mob.

After Alfaros murder, Plaza served a second presidential term, however, by this point the coastal agricultural and banking interests, popularly known as la Argolla , controlled the PLR more than Plaza did. Causes of The Liberal Revolution:And though la Argolla publicly advocated the Liberal cause, in practice it did little more than use the PLR and the Government to line its own pockets.

La Argollas abuse of power combined with the decline in world demand for Ecuadorian products pitched the country into a severe economic depression.

Ecuadors worsening economic situation and the popular unrest it manifested set the stage for a bloodless coup dtat in July 1925that officially marked the end of Liberal rule.Church turned factory during the transition from Conservatism to Liberalism.

After the Liberal Revolution and thirty years of Liberal rule, the Catholic Church lost much of its hold on Ecuador. Consequences of The Liberal Revolution:Roman Catholicism was no longer the constitutionally mandated state religion, education was secularized, and civil marriage and divorce were legalized.

In addition to tethering theCatholic Church, the era of Liberal rule sparked the development of Ecuadors infrastructure and economy. Alfaro and subsequent Liberal Administrations completed a number of important public projects such as the Quito-Guayaquil Railway.
