José Napoleón Duarte

nation salvador

Duarte, José Napoleón (1925–90), president of El Salvador 1980–82 (appointed) and 1984–88 (elected). His nation suffered from a civil war and attendant economic crises throughout his public life. A Christian Democrat, he promoted democracy and reconciliation as his nation's only hopes, but his efforts were in vain. Terminally ill, he declined to run again for office in 1989.
