the first elected president of Chile after Pinochet dictatorship from 1990 to 1994 who played a decisive role in restoring Chile's democracy after 17 years of brutal dictatorship and was at the center stage of Chilean politics for over 50 years as he often insisted he didn't see himself as a leader despite being president, senator, and seven times head of his centrist Christian Democratic Party, but Chileans viewed him as a key figure in efforts to prevent the bloody military coup that brought Gen. Augusto Pinochet to power and was later elected as the first president to follow the 1973-1990 dictatorship.
