Political stability has improved significantly under the current president, Rafael Correa. The frequent changes of government that were a feature of the decade before he assumed office in 2007 have been brought to an end. Mr Correa has now been in office for seven consecutive years, an all-time record for an Ecuadorean president. He has asked Congress to discuss a change to the constitution that would allow the indefinite re-election of all holders of popularly elected posts, which would mean that he could stand again in 2017.

The ruling Alianza País movement has an overwhelming majority in the National Assembly, reducing obstacles to governability. However, Mr Correa is likely to face strong opposition from indigenous and environmental groups to his plans to develop the mining and oil industries. This could translate into sporadic bouts of social unrest, although The Economist Intelligence Unit does not expect this to have an adverse effect on broader political stability.

Population growth is slowing because of a falling birth rate and continued, albeit decelerating, emigration. However, at an average annual rate of 1.3% in 2014-18, population growth will be rapid by developed-country standards and will be on a par with that of neighbouring Andean nations.
