International News: Guatemala’s Presidential candidate claims Government seeking to remove him from race

Posted: Friday, July 7, 2023. 9:27 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Guatemala’s presidential candidate, Bernardo Arevalo claims that the Guatemalan government is attempting to remove him from the race by questioning the results in the first round.

According to Reuters, a Guatemalan court ordered a ballot review after the ruling party, Vamos, first-place finisher Sandra Torres, and other allied parties alleged there were irregularities.

Countries including Germany, Canada, the United States, France, Britain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the OAS have urged Guatemala to “assure the integrity of the people’s vote.”

In addition, Arevalo told Reuters that he believes “the corrupt political class” could attempt to delay the electoral process until January 14, a deadline that allows the current Congress to appoint a new president if one has not been elected.

“This corrupt political class is facing a reality and that is that (my party) has a chance of winning and it means that they are going to lose total control of the system,” Arevalo stated.

Meanwhile, Arevalo and Torres are set to face-off on August 20, 2023.
