Antonio Hernández Mancha (born 1 April 1951 in Guareña, Badajoz) is a former Spanish politician and president of the People's Alliance political party from 1987 to 1989. He is married and has two children.

Political career

Hernández Mancha was elected regional president of People's Alliance in Andalucía (1980–87). In 1986, Manuel Fraga was removed for having attained his "electoral ceiling." The party conducted internal elections in which Hernández Mancha defeated Miguel Herrero y Rodríguez Miñón.

Hernández Mancha presented a motion of no confidence against Felipe González in order to be known by the population, but the motion was rejected as the Socialists held an absolute majority and his candidacy was therefore defeated. In 1989, he resigned from the post.

After leaving politics, Hernández Mancha worked as a lawyer and businessman.
