Luis Herrera Campins
Birth: May 4, 1925
Death: Nov. 9, 2007

Venezuelan Politician. Herrera became the President of Venezuela from 1979 to 1984. Born in Acarigua, Herrera was one of the founders of the Social Christian Party Copei. Herrera started his parliamentary work in 1947, when he was elected deputy to the Legislative Assembly of the Portuguesa State. In 1952, he was imprisoned for four months in the Cárcel Modelo (Model Jail) for his pro-democracy activism against the dictatorial Perez Jimenez regime. Herrera then moved into exile and he lived for the next six years in Spain. After his graduation as a lawyer, Herrera attended Congress from 1959 until his election as President. From 1986 to 1989 Herrera was general secretary of the Christian Democrat International, and he remained a working journalist until the mid-1990s. (bio by: José L Bernabé Tronchoni)
