Biography

Peruvian politician, a member of Perú Posible since 1994, who was elected as a Congressman in 2000, 2001, and 2006, representing Lima.

In 2000-01 Waisman led a Peruvian congressional investigation commission that investigated corruption and a range of illegal activities.

On 28 July 2001, Waisman became Second Vice President of Peru in Alejandro Toledo's government, and served as such from 2001 to 2006. When Raúl Diez Canseco resigned as First Vice President in 2004 after a scandal with his girlfriend, Waisman became the only Vice President of Peru until 2006. He was also Minister of Defense during Toledo's presidency. He attained these positions in government in spite of the fact that he does not have any post-secondary studies and did not finish secondary school.

In 2006, he was initially appointed as a presidential candidate but independent Jeanette Emmanuel later replaced him as Perú Posible's candidate. With her resignation, Rafael Belaúnde was appointed as the new candidate, but he also resigned.

He is considering running for Vice President once more in the upcoming early 2011 elections alongside Luis Castañeda Lossio, after having switched from Perú Posible due to irreconcilable differences with Toledo, to Solidaridad Nacional. He lost his seat in Parliament.
