About Emilio Portes Gil

  • Emilio Cándido Portes Gil (Spanish pronunciation: [e'miljo 'po?tes xil]; 3 October 1890 – 10 December 1978) was President of Mexico from 1928 to 1930, one of three to serve out the six-year term of president-elect General Álvaro Obregón, who was assassinated in 1928.
  • Since the Mexican Constitution of 1917 forbade re-election of a serving president, the out-going president Plutarco Elías Calles could not formally become president.
  • Portes Gil became president, but Calles, the "Jefe Máximo", retained effective political power during what is known as the Maximato.
