Paraguayan president assures respectful transition of popular vote

Asuncion, Jun 1 (Prensa Latina) The President of Paraguay, Mario Abdo Benitez, assured today on national television that once his mandate is over he will hand over power, "with temperance and resilience, to the next person that the Paraguayan people appoint".

The next general elections in the South American country were called for April 30, 2023, and according to data from the Superior Court of Electoral Justice, about 5 million Paraguayans are eligible to vote.

The head of state stated in the presentation of his annual report that once his successor is elected, he will cease his functions and thus hopes to “put an end, once and for all, to the unfortunate political practice of seeking to put down permanent roots in the national leadership at any price”.

Paraguay’s political history abounds with examples of those who have governed the country for more than one term, although the Constitution approved in 1992 prohibits the extension of terms of office and reelection.

Paraguayans will elect a new president and vice-president, the two chambers of the National Congress, governors and members of the Departmental Boards. The elected executive will take office on August 15, 2023.
