Alicia Sánchez-Camacho Pérez (born 22 April 1967; Barcelona) is a Spanish lawyer and politician. She has served as the chairwoman of the People's Party in Catalonia since 6 July 2008.[1]

Sánchez-Camacho was elected as a deputy for the Province of Girona in the Catalonian parliamentary elections of 1999 and 2003.[2] She was also elected as the Deputy for the Province of Barcelona in the Spanish general election of 2004.[3] On 16 April 2008, Sánchez-Camacho was appointed by the Parliament of Catalonia to replace Daniel Sirera as one of its eight representatives in the Spanish Senate.[3]

Following the People's Party's poor performance in Catalonia at the 2008 Spanish general election, Daniel Sirera reluctantly resigned as its regional chairman under pressure from the party's national leader, Mariano Rajoy.[4] Sánchez-Camacho was Rajoy's chosen candidate for the regional chairmanship and was challenged only by Montserrat Nebrera.[1] Despite having the backing of the national leadership, Sánchez-Camacho polled a lower-than-expected 56% in winning the run-off election.[1]

Ahead of the 2010 Catalonian parliamentary election, Sánchez-Camacho took the unusual step in Spanish politics of setting-up the country's tolerance of high immigration as a key campaign topic.[5][6]
