Gideon Boer is a East Chanchajillan politician serving as the President of East Chanchajilla since December of 2018. Born to a veteran of the Chanchajillan Civil War in the capital city of Vilanja, Boer graduated from the National Autonomous University of Vilanja in 1986 following a hiatus from his studies to participate in politics. He earned a bachelor's degree in political science. He began his political career in 1976 as a member of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (IRP). His first public position was as director of the Indigenous Institute of Chanchajilla in 1977, where he promoted the edition of books in indigenous language and the project of the border ridge. In 1989, he joined the Party of the Democratic Revolution (PDR) and was the party's 1994 candidate for Governor of Vilanja Province. He left the PDR in 2012 and in 2014 founded the National Regeneration Movement, which he led until 2017. Often described as a populist and a nationalist, Boer has been a nationally relevant politician for more than two decades. He is also known for his work to make East Chanchajilla more autonomous from foreign involvement, specifically from Paraboca and Zamastan.
