Eduardo S. Brizuela del Moral (born August 20, 1944) is an Argentine Radical Civic Union (UCR) politician. He has been governor of Catamarca Province since 2003, heading the Civic and Social Front of Catamarca.
Eduardo Brizuela was born in San Fernando del Valle de Catamarca and studied agronomy at the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba, from which he graduated in 1972. He became an academic in the field of topography and was named a member of the Provincial Agronomists Council, later heading the Bureau of Surveyors of Catamarca Province and of its capital. In 1986 he became rector of the Universidad Nacional de Catamarca, serving until 1991.
Brizuela was elected Mayor of San Fernando del Valle de Catamarca in 1991. He was re-elected in 1995, and again in 1999. He served as vice-president of the Argentine Federation of Municipalities from 1998 to 2000. In 2001, he was elected to the Argentine Senate representing his home province, serving until the gubernatorial election in 2003.
Eduardo Brizuela became a "K Radical," a UCR supporter of President Néstor Kirchner, and endorsed Kirchner in the 2007 elections. He subsequently received the endorsement of Jorge Sobisch's conservative Movement of the United Provinces, in his own, successful re-election bid for governor. Following his re-election, Brizuela (and most K Radicals) broke with Kirchnerism as a result of the 2008 Argentine government conflict with the agricultural sector.
