Clemente Yerovi Indaburu was a politician and the interim president of Ecuador from March 30, 1966, to November 16, 1966.
Yerovi was born on August 10, 1904 in Barcelona, Spain, where his parents Clemente Yerovi Matheus and Maria Indaburu Seminario lived temporarily as consul general of Ecuador. Yerovi studied at Vicente Rocafuerte High School in Guayaquil, and then at San Gabriel High School in Quito. He married Victoria Gomez Ycaza and had four children. He had many links to agriculture on the coast of the country, where he acquired a farm, that split in parts among its workers. Yerovi tenure is remembered by most ecuadoreans as a time of peace and prosperity. Even though Yerovi was not elected by popular vote, Ecuadoreans are very fond of his persona, erecting many monuments and naming avenues with his name.
Yerovi died in Guayaquil, Ecuador on July 19, 1981.
