César Charlone (politician)
César Charlone (1895–1973) was a Uruguayan political figure.
Charlone was prominent member of the Uruguayan Colorado Party during the 1930s.
Vice President of Uruguay
Charlone was succeeded as Vice President in 1938 by Alfredo Navarro.
He died in 1973.
The controversial nature of his term of office under Gabriel Terra suggests to some observers that he may be regarded as having largely repudiated the political ideals for which the Colorado Party has long stood. Others may recall that Chalone's willingness to identify with Gabriel Terra's rule by decree prefigures the cooperation of leading civilian Colorado party members, such as Juan Maria Bordaberry and Alberto Demicheli, with the civilian-military governments of 1973 to 1985. Indeed, Demicheli was a ministerial colleague of Charlone under the Presidency of Terra. Given the unquestionable extent of support for rule by decree in the Colorado (and, indeed, National) parties from the 1930s onward, it makes it difficult for historians to dismiss the Terra and 1973-1985 administrations as merely "military" dictatorships constituting supposed aberrations from the norm within Uruguayan political culture.
