Felipe Calderón Hinojosa (Spanish pronunciation: ( listen); born August 18, 1962) is the current President of Mexico. He assumed office on December 1, 2006, and was elected for a single six-year term through 2012. He is a member of the Partido Acción Nacional (PAN), one of the three major Mexican political parties.
Calderón's narrow victory at election and ascendancy to the presidency was fraught with strife and controversy, and actively challenged by his opponents. The results were contested by his closest opponent, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who started what he called a "pacific civil resistance". Calderon's victory was confirmed on September 5, 2006 by the Federal Electoral Tribunal without doing a recount as order by Law in these cases.
Prior to the presidency, Calderón actively participated in PAN politics. He has served as National President of the Party, Federal Deputy, and Secretary of Energy in Vicente Fox's cabinet.
