Posted: Tuesday, August 22, 2023. 3:17 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez:  Leaders from countries across the region have extended congratulations to Guatemala and President-elect Bernardo Arevalo on resounding victory in Sunday’s elections.

According to Reuters, Arevalo is the son of Guatemala’s first democratically elected president.

He garnered 58% of votes versus former first lady Sandra Torres’ 37%, with all votes counted.

The U.S. State Department noted that the Guatemalan people made their decision and the outcome of the vote was final.

“Based on the results announced by the TSE and corroborated by observation missions, we congratulate Bernardo Arevalo on his election.

“We look forward to working with Guatemala’s president-elect to strengthen the long and productive partnership between our countries,” a U.S. State Department official said.

In addition, European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said the election result was “very clear”.

Meanwhile, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, President Xiomara Castro of Honduras, and Nicaragua’s Daniel Ortega also extended congratulations.

Luis Almagro, head of the Organization of American States (OAS), said in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, that Guatemala had an “exemplary election day.”
