Biography

A lawyer, Camps is married with three children. He was first elected as a local councillor to Valencia city council, serving from 1991 to 1996, occupying the Presidency of the municipal transport body during that period. In 1996 he was elected to the Spanish Congress, representing Valencia province serving as Secretary of State for Territorial Administrations. However he resigned from the Congress 11 months later in February 1997, after being named as Minister for Culture and Education in the Generalitat Valenciana, retaining that post until January 1999. At the 2000 General Election, he returned to the Spanish Congress but again resigned in 2002 in order to run for President of the Generalitat Valenciana. In July 2003 he was elected president and has served in that position since then, being re-elected with an absolute majority in 2007.[1]

In March 2009, Camps was one of several PP figures accused by magistrate Baltasar Garzón of taking bribes. Garzón alleges that Camps received €12,000 towards a tailor's bill from a businessman, Francisco Correa, whom Garzón had jailed. Camps denied the charges.[2] [3] In August 2009, the judge dismissed the case ruling that Camps' actions did not constitute a crime.[4]
