Juan Andrés Ramírez (born 11 October 1947) is a Uruguayan lawyer and politician.
Juan Andrés Ramírez was born in Montevideo. He studied law in University of the Republic, becoming a well-known civil lawyer. He became a member of the National Party. In the 1989 general elections, he was elected as a Senator of the Herrerismo faction of the National Party.
President Luis Alberto Lacalle selected him as Interior Minister of his government, so Ramírez did not take up his Senator post. He was Interior Minister from March 1990 to November 1993, being replaced by Raúl Iturria.
1994 Presidential elections
Lacalle designated Ramírez as Herrerismo candidate for the 1994 presidential elections. Ramírez lost the elections within the National Party to Alberto Volonté, and the National Party narrowly lost to the Colorado Party.
Withdrawal from active politics
After 1999, Ramírez withdrew from active politics. A member of his faction, Alvaro Alonso, served as Employment Minister in Jorge Batlle's administration from 2000 to 2002. In 2004, he supported Jorge Larrañaga's successful bid for the National Party nomination.
Ramírez currently works as a lawyer in Montevideo.
