Carlos Humberto Perette (1915 - 1992) was an Argentine Radical Civic Union politician and lawyer. He was a provincial legislator, national deputy, senator, Vice-President and ambassador.
Perette was born in Parana, Entre Rios and was educated at the National University of the Littoral where he qualified as a lawyer. He was a keen footballer and played in the first division at Estudiantes de Parana. His brother Francisco Perette would become President of the Argentine Football Association (AFA).
Perette became involved in the Radicals at a young age and in the late 1930s served first as President of the Youth Chapter of the Parana UCR, and later of Entre Rios Province's chapter. In 1943 he was elected to the Entre Rios legislature, in elections that were won by his party headed by Eduardo Laurencena who was elected governor. Laurencena was prevented from taking office, however, by military intervention. Perette was elected a provincial deputy once again in 1946, a leading opponent of Peronist governor Hector Maya. Following his re-election in 1950, Perette served as President of the UCR bloc in the legislature.
