Vice President-elect Karin Herrera backed Arevalo on blaming the Attorney General Consuelo Porras, the head of the Special Prosecutor’s Office Against Impunity Rafael Curruchiche and the seventh judge of criminal instance, Fredy Orellana for destabilizing the legitimate political order.
The president-elect included “the Board of Directors of the Congress of the Republic and other dirty and anti-democratic actors,” describing their actions as a mockery of the popular will freely expressed at past elections.
Arevalo called on the people of Guatemala, civil society, entrepreneurs and workers, the popular movement, churches and indigenous authorities and students to join in defense of democracy and unrestricted respect for the will of the people.
The leader warned that there are still four months for taking his post; thus, the “political mafias” will try to consummate the coup d’état.
Nothing can prevent us from taking office on January 14, 2024, Arevalo assured after the head of the Registry of Citizens of the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE), Ramiro Muñoz, complied with Orellana’s resolution and cancelled Semilla party.
