President Ernesto Zedillo was inaugurated as President of Mexico on December 1, 1994, with an election that was marked by fairness and high voter turnout. Zedillo was raised in a lower middle class family, and received a scholarship to Yale University in the US. He studied economics, and returned to Mexico to continue his public service career at the Central Bank of Mexico. Zedillo achieved a number of political appointments through Mexico’s ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI). He became the Presidential nominee after the assassination of a fellow candidate. Once viewed as an unassuming technocrat, Zedillo is credited with steadying his nation through a period of economic and political turbulence. After his term in office, he became Director of the Center for the Study of Globalization at Yale University.
