Aristobulo Isturiz

Aristobulo Isturiz (20 December 1946 - ) is a Venezuelan politician and academic. He was a professor at the Centro de Estudios del Desarrollo (CENDES) of the Universidad Central de Venezuela. He was elected to Parliament several times for Accion Democratica, representing the Federal District (now the Capital District), before joining the Radical Cause in 1986. He was elected mayor of the Libertador Municipality of Caracas on December 6, 1992, a position he would remain in until January 2, 1996. After finishing his term as mayor (having lost his re-election bid to Antonio Ledezma), he became co-presenter of the Globovision TV show Blanco y Negro.

In 1997, together with some other ex-Radical Cause-members, he co-founded the Homeland for All , which in the 1998 presidential election decided to support Hugo Chavez. Between 2001 and 2007 he served as Minister of Education in Chavez' government. In 2008 Isturiz was the pro-Chavez Patriotic Alliance's candidate for mayor of Caracas; he was narrowly defeated.
