The Guatemalan Front is asking to extend the closure of the electoral process

In front of the headquarters of the entity that manages the votes, the initiative made up of groups and social organizations highlighted that there are threats and intimidation that intend to attack the votes of June 25 and August 20.

Since the set deadline expires on October 31, the movement stated that the approval of the exceptional provision of the Law guarantees the recovery of the records seized by the Public Ministry (MP).

In addition, he noted, he will support the members of the Vote Receiving Boards, avoid their false criminalization and give peace of mind to the TSE magistrates from the harassment of which he has been a victim and which may occur in the future.

Judge Blanca Alfaro, in assuming office on Thursday as president of the TSE until January 2025, assured that within three days the plenary session will resolve all pending requests.

Among them, the expansion of the electoral process appears, which – according to analysts – will preserve the defense of democracy that indigenous peoples and social organizations have been fighting in the streets for 27 consecutive days.

Before the protests, political parties and other sectors of civil society made the same request to the TSE as one of the ways to protect the electoral process and the popular will.

Two days ago, the organizations that make up the Alliance for Reforms joined the public asking to extend the election period until January 15, 2024.

The MP, considered an instrument of the corrupt pact, ordered the Operations Center and TSE headquarters to be raided for alleged voting irregularities, with the sequestration of minutes, which caused this unprecedented situation in the country.

The indigenous Mayan authorities called for mobilizations and road blockades on the 2nd, although last week they decided to change the strategy and put pressure on the headquarters of the investigative entity.

They are demanding the resignation of Attorney General Consuelo Porras and some of her officials, who are accused of promoting a coup against the winners of the election, with no visible results so far.
