  • 2003
    Age 41
    In 2003 she was named to the board of directors of the Colonial BancGroup, south Florida region. http://www.colonialbank.com/annualreports/2003annual/pages/5officers/6regionaldirectors.html

  • 2000
    Age 38
    She served as governor of the state until 2000, stepping down when she became pregnant, denying rumors that she was pushed aside by Chávez.

  • 1998
    Age 36
    Soon after the 1998 presidential election, Sáez was elected Governor of the state of Nueva Esparta, in an election made necessary by the January 1999 death in office of Rafael Tovar.
    More Details Hide Details She won overwhelmingly with more than 70% of the votes, defeating the candidate of Democratic Action.
    Yet her ability to defeat political opponents without actively campaigning left Sáez vulnerable to bad advice during a much more competitive presidential run in 1998.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1997
    Age 35
    At the same time, Sáez's late 1997 misstep in Chacao of banning kissing in public plazas planned to generate free media publicity backfired helping raise doubts about whether her success in the small, exclusive and wealthy Chacao (Caracas' Beverly Hills) could translate to the presidency.
    More Details Hide Details By August the Radical Cause Party withdrew its backing, saying that she had "lost her status as an independent". Political insiders assumed correctly Chavez's incendiary rhetoric against the oligarchy to be more effective in preventing a true revolution than Sáez soft-power idealism could be. After all it was COPEI former president, Rafael Caldera, who pardoned Hugo Chavez for the attempted coup against Carlos Andrés Pérez, from the opposing Democratic Action Party, making possible his eventual ascendance to power. Considered a betrayal of the Punto Fijo Pact that allowed Venezuela to simply rotate power among a small politically connected male elite. Chavez had no direct connection to Venezuela's ruling class besides Caldera's pardon, while Sáez was born, raised and supported by it. Political pragmatism and survival instincts altered the political landscape of the election granting the male rebel, not the female, the opportunity to make history.
    In the final poll of the year in December 1997 she reached almost 70% support - just one year prior to the presidential elections.
    More Details Hide Details However, despite spending millions of dollars on publicity and public adoration, Sáez fell below 15% within six months, as the public became increasingly skeptical of her readiness for the presidency and she lost credibility as an anti-establishment candidate after accepting the endorsement of COPEI. An invitation analysts now see as a political trap for a candidate ahead of her times. Sáez won the internal COPEI primary election with 62.7% of the vote, against Eduardo Fernandez's 35.7%, at an extraordinary convention with 1,555 COPEI delegates taking place at a Caracas hotel. An endorsement earned after COPEI realized their original male candidate was unable to win. Its leaders ascertained their best bet to remain competitive nationally was replace him with the charismatic yet independent Irene Sáez. Transforming her into the first independent and female candidate supported by a major political party for the presidency of Venezuela.
    Sáez kept her distance from mainstream parties for as long as she could, and in 1997 formed the Integrated Representation of New Hope (IRENE) Party as a launch pad for her eventual run in the December 1998 presidential elections.

  • 1995
    Age 33
    By the time of the next election in December 1995, Sáez was so popular that she didn't bother to campaign, and only one independent candidate opposed her.
    More Details Hide Details Her 96% share of the vote was the highest in Venezuela's democratic history. The Times of London ranked her 83rd in its list of the 100 most powerful women in the world, and presidential rumors multiplied.
  • 1992
    Age 30
    In the early 1990s Sáez turned to electoral politics and a week after the November 1992 coup attempt, led by Hugo Chavez, was elected mayor of Chacao Municipality, the wealthiest of the five municipalities of Caracas.
    More Details Hide Details Unbeknownst to Sáez at the time her political future would continue to be tied to Chavez's meteoric rise in the OPEC nation. In office, Sáez tackled Chacao's high crime rate by professionalising the municipal police force, with university graduates as officers, higher pay, new police vehicles, and a variety of mobility devices (including roller skates and mountain bikes) allowing the police to move around quickly. Crime fell dramatically as a result of her innovative ideas. Without political experience or an established party machine, Sáez was content to delegate on experts, and "hired top-notch administrators and listened to their advice about everything from setting the budget to running public services."
