Víctor Hugo Cárdenas Conde (given birth to 4 June 1951) is a Bolivian indigenous Aymara activist and politician. He’s the leader from the MRTKL party (Groundbreaking Liberation Movement Tupaq Katari). He was Vice Chief executive of Bolivia from 1993 to 1997 through the 1st presidency of Gonzalo Sánchez de Lozada. Cárdenas was created in 1951 in the Aymara town of Achica Bajo around the shores of Lake Titicaca, the child of the rural school instructor. When he was still a kid, his father transformed his name from Choquehuanca to Cárdenas, to be able to face mask his indigenous source and remove what at that time was an obstacle to his educational and professional advancement. His wife hasn’t renounced the normal dress from the chola, an urbanized female who keeps her indigenous identification. Cardenas keeps a PhD in linguistics and it is a university teacher. Cárdenas was an unsuccessful applicant in this year’s 2009 Bolivian presidential election, losing to Evo Morales. He stated that his solution was looking for a nationwide consensus instead of division.
