Federico Ramon Puerta is an Argentine Peronist politician who has served as a governor, senator and national deputy and effectively acted as President of Argentina during 2001.
Puerta was born in Apostoles, Misiones Province. He attended the Universidad Catolica Argentina in Buenos Aires and qualified as a civil engineer. However, he entered the family business of the cultivation of yerba mate, and became a successful businessman and millionaire.
Puerta was elected a national deputy for Misiones in 1987. In 1991 he was elected Governor of Misiones Province, re-elected in 1995 and served until 1999. He followed the neo-liberal economic model of President Carlos Menem, including privatising the provincial bank of which his own grandfather had been a founder.
