Pérez won the 1990 presidential election with 32.92% in the first round and 50.38% in the second round. He narrowly beat Plutarco Dijker, an independent candidate who appeared tied in the public opinion pulls with Pérez before election day.
Pérez was inaugurated in Ciudad Beldad on 20 August 1990.
In forming his cabinet, Pérez exclusively recruited fellow members of his party, the Social Democrats (PSD), with the exception of General Paul Oppenheimer for Minister of Defense, who was officially independent. As the PSD controlled both chambers of Congress, Pérez made no attempt at making an outreach to any other party for an alliance. After General Oppenheimer resigned and was replaced by Pablo Luchador, the entire cabinet was of the PSD.

Focused significantly more on foreign policy during his presidency, Vice President Carmella Grosso mostly took on the role of handling domestic policy.
The foreign policy of Tito Pérez deviated from the mainline non-interventionist stance of his party. In the first year of his presidency, Pérez deployed Santa Rosan peacekeeping forces in Lache and Occitania to enforce a ceasefire. Additionally, he supported regimes that were combating rebellions, such as the American Federation. Pérez attributed his foreign policy to "maintaining stability home and abroad."
