In 2006 Rafael Correa was elected president of Ecuador. An educated economist, he came to politics with a mission to transform a country struggling under poverty and debt into a self-sufficient, social, independent, ecological and participative democracy.

From the Yasuni Initiative, where the country would no longer rely on exploiting their natural oil resources, to the analyzing of the IMF debt structure, he has giving Ecuadorians genuine reason to believe that a new type of government is possible.
