In the Congress of Cucuta, in 1821, Simón Bolívar was elected President and Francisco de Paula Santander became Vice-president.
Bolivar did not function as president for too long, as one of the goals in the Congress was to free Venezuela and Quito, claimed by the Congress as part of the former Viceroyalty of New Granada and now the Republic of Colombia.
