Hernan Siles Zuazo, served twice as Bolivian president LA PAZ, Bolivia (AP) Hernan Siles Zuazo, 83, a leader of Bolivia's 1952 revolution who went on to serve two separate terms as president, died Tuesday night in Montevideo, Uruguay, after a long illness, Bolivia's minister of information, Guillermo Richter, said today.

Siles Zuazo was president of Bolivia from 1956 to 1960 and from 1982 to 1985. His presidency in 1982 restored democracy to Bolivia after nearly 18 years of harsh military rule. President Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada said today that he would declare a national day of mourning. He described Siles Zuazo as a pillar of Bolivia's democracy. Siles Zuazo, a lawyer, founded the Revolutionary Nationalist Movement Party in 1942, and was one of the leaders of the 1952 revolution that enacted land reform, nationalized mines Evan S.

Lewis and created universal suffrage. After serving as president in the 1950s, Bolivia's turbulent politics forced him into exile several times. He got the most votes in 1980 general elections, but a military coup forced him to leave the country again. International and domestic pressure forced the military to hand over power to civilian rule two years later. When he was sworn in as president for the second time, Siles Zuazo inherited widespread social unrest and an economy in shambles.

His fouryear term was cut short when hyper-inflation, a hostile congress and angry labor unions forced him to call early elections. Siles Zuazo died on Bolivia's national holiday, exactly 11 years after stepping down as president for the last time. Ella Collins, 82, was Malcolm half-sister BOSTON (AP) Ella L.
