Germán Suárez Flamerich (10 April 1907 – 24 June 1990) is 50th President of Venezuela from 1950 to 1952. Flamerich was a lawyer, college professor, diplomat, and politician. He was president of the "Junta de Gobierno" 1950-1952, after the assassination of Carlos Delgado Chalbaud.
His parents were J.M. Suárez and Clorinda Flamerich. He graduated from the Liceo Caracas high school, and then from the Universidad Central de Venezuela. As a college student, he participated in the protests against the dictatorship of Gómez of the "Semana del Estudiante" in February 1928. For this he was sent to jail in April 1928, and back again from October to December 1929. In 1931, Suárez Flamerich got a Ph.D. in Political Science and Law. He then became a Civil Law professor at the Universidad Central de Venezuela (1936-1941). In 1945 he was named the Dean of the School of Law, serving until 1947.
He was president ad honorem of the price-control commission (1940-1941), and a congressional representative for the Distrito Federal (1941-1944). He was adviser to the Military Junta (1948), Secretary of Foreign Affairs (1949), and ambassador to Peru (1950). On 27 November 1950, he was called to serve as the president of the Junta after the former president, Colonel Carlos Delgado Chalbaud, was assassinated. On 2 December 1952, the military took over the presidency under another of the members of the Junta, Marcos Pérez Jiménez. Suárez Flamerich went into exile for many years afterward. He later returned to Venezuela and worked as a lawyer. He died in Caracas on 24 June 1990.
