Ulises Ruiz Ortiz (born April 9, 1958 in Chalcatongo de Hidalgo , Oaxaca ) is a Mexican politician of the Partido Revolucionario Institucional . He was governor of the state of Oaxaca from 2004 to 2010 .

During Ruiz's tenure there were numerous conflicts, in particular he was accused of electoral fraud . After he tried to violently suppress a protest by the teachers' union SNTE and three people died in the process, an uprising developed that is supported by the Asamblea Popular de los Pueblos de Oaxaca . Ruiz had to flee from his official residence in the capital Oaxaca de Juárez . The insurgents said they would not end their protests until Ruiz resigns.

Ruiz's term of office ended normally with the election of his successor Gabino Cué Monteagudo on July 4, 2010. He took over the office on November 30 of the same year.

In November 2014, the State of Oaxaca set up a Truth Commission ( Comisión de la Verdad ) headed by Alejandro Solalinde to investigate the acts of violence in 2006 and 2007, including Ruiz's possible responsibility for the human rights violations committed at the time, and its report in March 2016 should submit.
