President of Uruguay

He was the de facto caretaker president of Uruguay chosen by José Batlle y Ordóñez to succeed him after his first term in office.

Williman was chosen by Batlle to succeed him as Uruguayan presidents were constitutionally barred from serving consecutive terms. His policies generally followed those of Batlle.

He was succeeded by Batlle who was re-elected in 1911. He returned to the Senate of Uruguay but then left it to become director of the national bank in 1915.

Wílliman lived to see much of his and Battle y Ordóñez's democratic legacy destroyed — at least temporarily — by President Gabriel Terra, who reinforced his Presidential rule in a coup d'état in 1933.

Death and legacy

He died in 1934.

A road in Punta del Este is named after him.
