Fabian Alarcon

Fabian Ernesto Alarcon Rivera was President of Ecuador from 6 February 1997 to 9 February 1997 and from February 11, 1997 to August 10, 1998.

Alarcon was born in Quito. He was head of the Congress from August 1995 to February 1997, when he was made acting president due to the impeachment of President Abdala Bucaram. This deepened the political crisis in Ecuador as vice-president Rosalia Arteaga challenged Alarcon's assumption of the presidency. Arteaga then became president for two days but Alarcon was then restored. He gave up the presidency after early elections were held in 1998, in which he did not run. In 1999 he was arrested on corruption charges, but was later released. Alarcon is a member of the Alfarista Radical Front.
