Carlos Mancheno Cajas (October 9, 1902 – October 11, 1996) was President of Ecuador from 23 August 1947 to 2 September 1947. His vice-president was Alejandro Solorzano, the former chief of the National Police. Mancheno assumed control after a coup d'état he led deposed President José María Velasco. Velasco left the country, returning later both to Ecuador and to the presidency. Mancheno himself was removed only ten days after taking control, and Velasco's vice-president, Mariano Suárez, assumed the presidency.
