Quote1 Evidently, you are a politician. And isn't it that naive philosophy which has caused all your troubles? Quote2
-- Diablo

Robert Kelly was an activist for mutant-human peace. He had succeeded in making the Human High Council and Apocalypse's empire sign the Kelly Pact, a treaty meant to prevent the culling's and the experimentation on humans and mutants alike, though Apocalypse's forces did little to respect the Pact.

Due to his advocacy of pacifism, Kelly was arrested and placed in a prisoners camp in Mexico, which was under the watch of Diablo and the Absorbing Man, two magic-based mutates that had aligned with Apocalypse. However, Kelly was rescued by Magneto, Nightcrawler and Rogue[1].

Following the defeat of Apocalypse, Kelly was elected President of the United States. He named Magneto as Director of Mutant Affairs and enlisted the aid of the X-Men in the reconstruction of the broken country[2].
