Ricardo Rossello Politician

Ricardo Antonio "Ricky" Rosselló Nevares (born March 7, 1979 in Puerto Rico) is a post-doctoral neuroscience and tissue engineering researcher in the lab of Erich Jarvis at Duke University. He is also involved in politics and political commentary in Puerto Rico. Rosselló was an active campaigner as vice-chairperson for the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign in Puerto Rico and was elected a delegate to the 2008 Democratic National Convention from the Bayamón senatorial district. There has been frequent speculation in the press about him running for elective public office in Puerto Rico. He is immersed in a grass-roots educational campaign favoring statehood for Puerto Rico, suggesting that involvement of the international community may be necessary for the United States government to take action. He is a political commentator who currently writes a regular column for El Vocero, a daily newspaper published in San Juan, on topics including politics, science, healthcare and the economy. Rosselló Nevares is the youngest son of Pedro Rosselló, former Governor of Puerto Rico and his wife Maga Neváres de Rosselló.

The New Progressive Party —Spanish: Partido Nuevo Progresista is a political party that advocates for Puerto Rico to become a state of the United States. The party was founded in 1967 by dissidents from the Republican Statehood Party which were dissatisfied with the party after it instructed its members to not participate in the referendum held that same year. The PNP is one of the two major parties in Puerto Rico with significant political strength and currently holds the seat of resident commissioner. The party also currently has a minority of the seats in both the Senate and House of Representatives, and in the seats of mayors in the municipalities of Puerto Rico. Politically, the party is contrasted by the Popular Democratic Party which advocates for maintaining the current political status of Puerto Rico as that of an unincorporated territory of the United States with self-government and the Puerto Rican Independence Party which advocates for the independence of Puerto Rico. Party members are commonly called penepés, progresistas, or estadistas and affiliate with both the Republican and Democratic Party of the United States.
