Guatemala: Corruption, Uncertainty Mar June 2019 Elections [June 11, 2019]   [open pdf - 421KB]

From the Document: "Guatemala is scheduled to hold national elections for president, the entire 158-seat Congress, 340 mayors, and other local posts on June 16, 2019. The list of candidates on the ballot was finalized one week before voting. Candidates were still being ruled ineligible--some due to corruption allegations--and appealing rulings in early June. Elements of the government allowed some candidates to run and impeded the registrations of others. Such uncertainty will likely lead many to question the outcome."
