Comments

Printer: ABNC

Tomás Estrada Palma was the first elected Cuban President after the independence on 1902, kept his position till 1906.
He had no political experience, so based his administration on a "commercial" plan, with higher income than outcome, having a surprising balance of over 20 million Dollars on 1905.
As he manipulated things to be reelected, members of Liberal Party started movements opposing this action, so he choose to ask the military intervention of US government, not to be deposed, and withdrew his position a few later, causing again the US control of the country.
