Uruguay’s President – from solitary confinement as a radical to Presidency

The President of Uruguay Jose Mujica has been dubbed by international media as ‘the poorest president in the world’.

In his latest official declaration of wealth, he says he owns just two vehicles, a small amount of property and his farmhouse. He donates 90% of his salary to charity.

Mujica became president of Uruguay after a landslide victory more than two years ago. After a half a term in power, he is now backing a bill to legalise the use of cannabis.

What else is he planning?
