Frederik de Klerk

Data di nascita: 18. Marzo 1936

Frederik Willem de Klerk è un politico sudafricano, presidente del Sudafrica dal 1989 al 1994.

A capo del Partito Nazionale dal 1989 al 1997, in qualità di capo di Stato accompagnò il Paese dall'apartheid al post-segregazione razziale, avviando negoziati che si conclusero con l'estensione degli stessi diritti civili dei bianchi a tutte le etnie del Sudafrica e ponendo fine alla trentennale carcerazione di Nelson Mandela, attivista per i diritti delle persone di colore nel Paese.

In ragione di tali riforme sociali e civili fu destinatario del premio Nobel per la pace del 1993 insieme allo stesso Mandela.

Quando quest'ultimo divenne suo successore alla presidenza del Sudafrica, de Klerk ne divenne il vice tra il 1994 e il 1996; si ritirò dalla politica attiva nel 1997.

È, ad oggi, il più recente presidente bianco del Sudafrica.
