Abstract
The ethos is the image that the speaker projects from his person during his speech. The reflection here puts this image in relation with that which was conceived of the speaker before his discourse - pre-discursive ethos-. Democracy is a mode of governance that favors the sovereignty of the people. Are deciphered, the moral values promoted in the form of discursive evidence in the defendant speaker Laurent Gbagbo during his February 28, 2013 speech before the International Criminal Court. How in his plea, Laurent Gbagbo deconstructs the offence he was charged with through the pre-eminence of his democratic values? The notions of ethos and democracy are first defined. Then the democrat ethos is shown. Finally, the revelation of the speaker's character as effective data likely to influence the verdict of the trial in favor of the defendant finalizes the reflection.
