David Samanez Ocampo
David Samanez Ocampo , the son of Jose Samanez, served as President of Peru during the transitional period of March to December 1931. He oversaw changes to the electoral statutes that effectively brought the vote to the masses, leading to the critical – if highly controversial – presidential election of December 1931, when Sanchez Cerro defeated Victor Raul Haya de la Torre. Instrumental in his appointment was his reputation and high prestige among politicians of all factions.
