Alemán Lacayo, Arnoldo (1946–). He was from Managua and served as an official in the Somoza government during the 1970s. Some of his property was seized and he actively opposed the Sandinista Front for National Liberation (FSLN) or Sandinista government. He served as mayor of Managua and served as president from 1997 to 2002. His administration was noted for its extensive corruption.

Belli, Giaconda (1948–). An award-winning author, novelist, and poet, she was a member of the FSLN that overthrew the Somoza dictatorship in 1979. She served as the FSLN international press liaison. Her writings emphasize the role of gender in the Sandinista revolution.

Bolaños Geyer, Enrique Jose (1928–). Born in Masaya to a wealthy businessman, he created a very successful agro-industrial company (SAIMSA) which became one of the largest cotton producers in Nicaragua. Bolaños opposed the Sandinistas. He served as president from 2002–2007 and successfully brought about corruption charges against his predecessor Arnoldo Alemán.

Borge Martinez, Tomás (1930–). The only living co-founder of the FSLN, Borge was part of the student opposition to Somoza in the 1950s. He served as the minister of the interior during the Sandinista government of the 1980s.
