- Rider(s):Camacho, Manuel Avila
(1897–1955) served as the President of Mexico from 1940 to 1946. Domestically, Ávila protected the working class, creating social security in 1943 and working to reduce illiteracy. He continued land reform and declared a rent freeze to benefit low-income citizens. He also promoted election reform, creating new requirements that made it impossible for communists to run. This was done by a new electoral law passed in 1946, which made it difficult for opposition parties of the far right and the far left to operate legally.
