By BBN Staff: The Secretary-General of the Organization of American States (OAS) issued a statement today saying that it supports the efforts of the Government of Guatemala for an inclusive dialogue that facilitates understanding among all sectors of national life.
“We consider that this is essential to ensure the institutional strengthening of the country, especially in the necessary independence of the judicial and electoral powers,” the OAS said.
The OAS added that with regard to the budget for 2021, it must ensure the maximum commitments of the Government and Congress to guarantee transparency, accountability and the highest standards in the fight against corruption, understanding the fight against child malnutrition as a priority.
“Likewise, the political will to promote spaces for citizen understanding in times of such complexity due to the aforementioned issue, COVID-19, recent natural disasters and other problems that are difficult to treat for any government is highlighted. The OAS will continue to be attentive to provide the support that is required,” the statement expressed.
The OAS further reiterated that there is a right to protest, which must be absolutely guaranteed, but there is no right to vandalism.
The OAS says that the mandates granted by the people in democratic elections must be respected, that is the meaning of democracy.
Likewise, governance does not imply impunity, but quite the contrary, it must be reaffirmed by absolutely clear patterns of fighting corruption.
