Miguel Ángel Revilla Roiz, President of the Autonomous Community of Cantabria (Spain) [1], was born in Polaciones, Cantabria on 23 January 1943.

In 1976, he was a founder of the Association in Defense of the Interests of Cantabria (ADIC), a pioneer organization in the defense of the autonomy of Cantabria, and later of the Regionalist Party of Cantabria (PRC), founded in 1978. In the fourth Regional Congress, on 20 March 1988, Miguel Ángel Revilla was elected for the first time as General Secretary, a position that he has occupied uninterruptedly since then, with the ratification of the successive congresses, held on 9 November 1991, on 13 November 1994, on 8 November 1998, and on 17 November 2002.

In the 25 May 2003, Regional elections his party obtained the highest vote increase: 60 percent more than in the previous elections. On 27 June 2003, Despite his party being the third most voted, Miguel Ángel Revilla, after a coalition with Spanish Socialist Workers' Party (PSOE), was chosen President of Cantabria. In the 27 May 2007 elections PRC rose to second place, with a result that again gave them enough seats to form a coalition with the PSOE, being re-elected in June that year as president. In the 22 May 2011 elections PRC was also the second party, but the People's Party (PP) obtained absolute majority.
