Yesterday the military of right, Otto Perez Molina, won the presidential elections in Guatemala. This means a turning point for the right party of the Central America country.
According to the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE for its Spanish acronym) Molina of Partido Patriota, earned a total of 54,65% during the first counting. His rival member Manuel Baldizon from Partido Libertad Democratico Renovada had a 45,36%.
As president of Guatemala, Molina plans to reinforce the army to fight the growing violence and crime produced by the presence of Los Zetas Mexican cartel.
If any of both contestants win, Guatemala would have a vice president woman for the first time, Roxana Baldetti of 49 years old would be Molina’s vice president. However if Baldizon wins Raquel Blandon, 68, would also be a vice president. (AV)
