Abstract : Democracy when applied correctly, is undoubtedly the best to conduct a nation's destiny. But in a country like Ecuador, democracy has been used as an instrument for the abuse of power, to the point that its credibility and stability do not seem as something attainable and, therefore, its very existence is in danger. In this context, the Ecuadorean Armed Forces have taken the responsibility to support democracy regardless of its failures. This study shows the way this role has been executed, leaving the military institution as the most reliable in the country.
