Juan campisteguy

Juan Campisteguy Oxcoby (September 7, 1859 – September 4, 1937) was a Uruguayan soldier, lawyer, and President of Uruguay (1927–1931). He was born in Montevideo. Son of a soldier in the Siege of Montevideo, Campisteguy ended law studies in 1887. He participated in the revolution of Quebracho, wrote in the newspaper El Día and was deputy finance minister since 1891. Campisteguy was formerly a close political ally of the longserving, liberal President of Uruguay José Batlle y Ordóñez, although he subsequently maintained a more independent political relationship within the Uruguayan Colorado Party. He served as the President of Uruguay between 1927 and 1931. It was while Campisteguy was President in 1927 that women first exercised the vote in a local election (the Plebiscite of Cerro Chato ). Campisteguy was succeeded as President by Gabriel Terra. He died in Montevideo in 1937.
