Carlos Juan Riviero Lopés (born 22 February 1955) is a Berriman politician who is the 5th and current president of Berima. He began his term in 2016 and was reelected in 2020 as the candidate for the APSD. His presidency so far has been marked by high approval ratings, national economic revitalization and progressive social reform and legislation. His only concurrent prime minister has been Manuel Ramon Barbosa Jr. and the two have worked in tandem since the 2016 election.

Riviero was born in Cortez, CBR and grew up as the youngest of eight siblings in a poor day-laborer household on the rural outskirts of the city. Riviero taught himself how to read and write in order to attend his local primary school and was subsequently enrolled in a gifted students program which led to him receiving a full scholarship to the University of Cortez where he studied political theory. After finishing college early Riviero joined the Berriman military as an officer and attained the rank of corporal before being honorably discharged in 1981. Following this he returned to graduate school at Yale University to obtain his maters and doctorate before successfully running for mayor of Cortez in 1990.

Riviero served as mayor of Cortez for twelve years and is regarded as a point of pride for the city, with his tenure as mayor being one of the most prosperous periods in the history of Cortez. Following his mayorship Riviero was appointed as Secretary of Education by Ignacio Muñoz and subsequently Chairman of the National Assembly.

Following the first term of Bianca Venegas Riviero decided to run for president which he successfully obtained in a landslide victory. Riviero was reelected in 2020 following an intense campaign against far-right GCC pundit Edwin Vela.
