Joaquín Chapaprieta

Joaquín Chapaprieta y Torregrosa (Torrevieja, 26 October 1871 – Madrid, 1951) was a Spanish political figure during the Second Spanish Republic.

A member of a moderate Republican party, he served as Member of the Parliament (1901) and Member of the Senate, representing the La Coruña and Valladolid provinces. He served as Minister of Labour from 7 December 1922 to 3 September 1923.

From 6 May 1935 he served as Minister of the Treasury, a position he continued to hold after 23 September when he was appointed President of the Government, serving as an independent with support from the Spanish Confederation of the Autonomous Right (CEDA) and the Peasant's Party. His government collapsed after the CEDA vetoed a proposed increase in death duties from 1% to 3.5%.[1] After stepping down on 14 December, he continued to serve as Minister of the Treasury until 30 December, when he resigned.

On the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, he retired from politics.
