Pedro Juan Rosselló González, M.D., (Spanish pronunciation: [roseˈʎo]; born April 5, 1944 in San Juan, Puerto Rico), is a Puerto Rican physician and politician who served as the sixth Governor of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico from 1993 to 2001. He was President of the New Progressive Party from 1991 to 1999 and 2003 to 2008, and served as Senator for the District of Arecibo from 2005 to 2008.



In 1988 Rosselló was the New Progressive Party (NPP) candidate for Resident Commissioner of Puerto Rico. He was not successful in that 1988 electoral bid. From 1990 to 1991 he successfully challenged former Governor and then-NPP President Carlos Romero Barceló for the NPP’s presidency. He was thereafter elected Governor of Puerto Rico in 1992 and in 1996 was re-elected by the widest electoral margin up to that date. He also served as President of the Council of State Governments as well as Chairman of the Southern Governors' Association, and Democratic Governors Association. In 1999 he announced he would not seek a third term and retired from active politics in 2001.
