He contributed to the enthronement of democracy and good governance, serving first as a Senator in the aborted Third Republic and later as a pro-democracy activist, working tirelessly as a member of the National Democratic Coalition (NADECO) to struggle for the de-annulment of the June 12, 1993, presidential election.
