Alejandro "Álex" Char Chaljub (born 16 April 1966) is the current Mayor of Barranquilla , who also has previously served in the same office (2008-2011). A Civil Engineer and a politician with the Radical Change Party, he was councilor of Liberal Party in 1997. Later he ran in 2000 for the Governorship of the Department of Atlántico, but initial ballot results gave victory to his contender Ventura Díaz Mejía. After a lengthy and often criticized process, the Administrative Supreme Court of Colombia reviewed the election results and found Char to be rightful winner of the race and allowed him to serve the remaining period of his term in 2003.
