GUATEMALA CITY, August 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- In order to protect the electoral process, Dionisio Gutiérrez, president of Fundación Libertad y Desarrollo, made a call to the citizens, in the framework of the presentations of the First and the Second Survey of the Second Electoral Round in Guatemala, during the month of August.
Gutiérrez affirmed: "For those who are wondering today, why in 2023 we are going to present two political polls in the second electoral round, the answer is that democracy in Guatemala is in danger."
Additionally, regarding the candidates, Gutiérrez highlighted: "One of the options is the old system, made up of political smugglers. Those who never miss a train because they get on everyone, and then ask where it will go.
Their goal is power, at any cost. We know what they are made of and what they are capable of.
The danger of this option is that it would lead us to the consolidation of a criminal State with the three powers at its disposal.
The other option will have to prove that it is an option. If he wins this contest, to face the aberration that politics has become, to free the captured state and to survive, he will have to govern with the support and consent of the citizens, whom he must convince that he represents them."
The presentations were attended by a select group of national guests and the international community.
These activities are part of an effort that will culminate on election day, August 20, with the International Electoral Observation Mission of Fundación Libertad y Desarrollo, made up of four former presidents of Latin America and four North American officials.
