Carlos José Solórzano Gutiérrez (17 January 1860 in Managua – 30 August 1936 in San José, Costa Rica) was the President of Nicaragua between 1 January 1925 and 14 March 1926.[1]


He headed a political coalition which was moderate Conservative which led to his rise as the Conservative Party received United States assistance in attaining power. But when the detachment of U.S. Marines which had remained in Nicaragua for thirteen years withdrew, believing that the political situation was stable, it led to his downfall. In October 1925, the government of Solórzano was overthrown in a coup by former President General Emiliano Chamorro, who failed to gain U.S. recognition and subsequently resigned in favor of Adolfo Díaz.
