Francisco Álvarez Cascos

Francisco Álvarez Cascos (October 1, 1947-present) is a Spanish civil engineer and politician.

In 1976, he joined Reforma Democrática and Alianza Popular, two right-wing parties. He was the spokesman for the Gijón Council between 1979 and 1986, county councillor and regional adviser of the Pre-Autonomous Body.

In 1982, after the merger of Alianza Popular into the center-right People's Party, he was elected senator for Asturias, a position which he combined with that of spokesman for the People's Party Parliamentary Group in the General Junta of the Principate of Asturias (Asturias' regional legislature) from 1983 onwards. In 1986 he was elected deputy for Asturias.

At the 9th National Congress, he was elected Secretary-General of the People's Party and was confirmed in this office at the last three national congresses of the PP which took place in Seville (1990) and Madrid (1993 and 1996).

He was a national Member of Parliament for Asturias, re-elected in 1989, 1993, 1996 and 2000. He was First Vice President of the Government and Minister of the Presidency for the 1996-2000 term, and Minister for Development for the 2000-2004 term.

In 2003, he resigned and left politics because he wanted to divorce and get married to another woman.
