The history of Ecuador

With the oil boom fading, Ecuador returned to democracy in 1979, under the first Ecuadorian president of the 1979 constitution, Jaime Roldos Aguilera who, with his Popular Forces' Concentration (CFP) party, won a decisive victory against Sixto Duran Ballen of the Social Christian Party (PSC). After a leadership disagreement with Asaad Bucaram, the then leader of the CFP, Roldos left the above-mentioned party to found his own along with his wife.

Ecuador history, Jaime Roldos Aguilera

This Roldos-founded party, called "People, Change and Democracy" (PCD), would become an unimportant third-runner in Ecuadorian politics when Abdala Bucaram Ortiz's Guayaquil-based Ecuadorian Roldosista Party (PRE) was founded in 1982.

During the year 1981, the country experienced another episode (named the Ecuador-Peru conflict of 1981, and also Paquisha, after a territory in the surrounding area) of the recurring conflicts it has had throughout its history with the republic of Peru. By the end of the year 1981, Vice President Osvaldo Hurtado Larrea of the Popular Democracy (DP) party

succeeded Roldos after Roldos's airplane crashed  over the Ecuadorian section of the Amazonian jungles, instantly killing him.
