Mexican politician who served as the 42nd President of Mexico from 1930 to 1932. He was one of three Mexican presidents to serve out the six-year term (1928-1934) of assassinated president-elect Álvaro Obregón, while former president Plutarco Elías Calles retained power in a period known as the Maximato. Calles was so blatantly in control of the government that Ortiz Rubio resigned the presidency in protest in 1932.
During his term as president, he oversaw the passage of a new labor law and inaugurated the zoo in Chapultepec Park in Mexico City.
Following his resignation, Ortiz Rubio went into self-exile in the United States returning to Mexico in 1935.
In 1963, Ortiz Rubio published a memoir.
He died on 4 November 1963, aged 86, in Mexico City.
