He was also elected senator for the electoral circle of Castelo Branco. In the sequence of the sudden death of President of the Ministry António Maria Baptista on June 3, 1920, he was chosen to be his substitute. However, on 18 June, Ramos Preto government was forced to resign by the parliament, after being criticized by increasing the salaries of the members of his ministerial cabinets. Several personalities were then successively invited to constitute a government, but they all declined, making the government of Ramos Preto survive in functions until 26 June, when it was finally substituted by a ministry presided over by António Maria da Silva.
