Early life and education
He was born in Morelia, Michoacán, as the son of Pascual Ortiz de Ayala y Huerta and Lenor Rubio Cornelis.
He won against José Vasconcelos, a former minister of education, national luminary against corruption and Calles's authoritarian rule, and the candidate of the Anti-Re-election Party. The margin was 700,000 votes.
However, Ortiz was an ineffective leader. Alleging excessive interference in his presidency by former president Plutarco Elías Calles, from whom Ortiz demonstrated independence while he was in office and still seriously shaken by an attempt on his life at the very start of his term, he resigned the presidency on 4 September 1932. He was succeeded by Abelardo L. Rodríguez.
