MAYBE LATERCLOSEVioleta Barrios Torres de Chamorro(Spanish pronunciation:[bjoˈleta tʃaˈmoro]18 October1929)[1]is a Nicaraguan politician who served asPresident of Nicaraguafrom 1990 to1997. She was the first and, to date, only woman to hold the position of president inNicaragua.Born into a landed family in southern Nicaragua, Chamorro was partially educated in theUnited States. After returning to her home country, she married and raised a family. Herhusband,Pedro Joaquín Chamorro Cardenal, was a journalist working at his family'snewspaper,La Prensa, which he later inherited. As a result of his anti-governmentstance, he was often jailed or exiled, forcing Chamorro to spend a decade following himabroad or visiting him in jail. When he was assassinated in 1978, Chamorro took overthe newspaper. Pedro's murder strengthened theNicaraguan Revolutionand his image,as wielded by his widow, became a powerful symbol for the opposition forces. Initially,when theSandinistaswere victorious overAnastasio Somoza Debayle, Chamorro fullysupported them. She agreed to become part of the provisional government establishedunder theJunta of National Reconstruction(Spanish:Junta de Gobierno deReconstrucción Nacional, JGRN); however, when the Junta began moving in a moreradical direction and signed agreements with theSoviet Union, Chamorro resigned andreturned to the newspaper.Under her direction,La Prensacontinued to criticize the government and its policiesdespite threats and government-forced shutdowns. WhenDaniel Ortegaannouncedthat elections would be held in 1990, Chamorro was selected as the candidate for theopposition group known as theNational Opposition Union(Spanish:Unión NacionalOpositora
