Mexican president who served from 1928 to 1930, one of three politicians to serve out the six-year term of president-elect General Álvaro Obregón, who was assassinated in 1928. Since the Mexican Constitution of 1917 forbade re-election of a serving president, the out-going president Plutarco Elías Calles could not formally become president. Portes Gil became president, but Calles, the "Jefe Máximo", retained effective political power during what is known as the Maximato.
Portes Gil retired from politics in 1936, and died in Mexico City on 10 December 1978 at the age of 88.
