Carlos Fischer

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Carlos Lorenzo Fischer Brusoni (1903 – 7 August 1969)[1] was a Uruguayan political figure. He was President of Uruguay from 1958 to 1959, at the end of a long period of rule by Presidents of the Colorado Party not to be resumed by that party until 1967.

Background

Fischer was a member of the Uruguayan Colorado Party. From February 15, 1943 until November 9, 1949, during the 34th and 35th legislative period he was, representing the department Río Negro, a member of the Cámara de Representantes.[2] In the early 1950s he was minister of agriculture in Uruguay. In 1958 his fellow-Colorado colleague Arturo Lezama stepped down as President. On March 7, 1958 he was chosen by the national parliament as his successor as chairman of the parliament, which automatically made him president of the republic.[3] At March 1, 1959[4] He was succeeded as president by Martín Echegoyen of the National Party, after which Fischer was until 1963 the first vice-president in the Senate of Uruguay. During the 38th and 39th legislative period he was a replacing senator from March 3, 1959, with some interruptions until February 14, 1967.[5]
