Spanish Prime Minister condemns 'threat to democracy' in Guatemala

9/12/2023 18:24
        The Spanish Prime Minister on Saturday condemned the actions of Guatemalan prosecutors as a "threat to democracy" after they questioned the election victory of the country's President-elect Bernardo Arevalo.
        
        "I want to show my most absolute rejection of the actions of the Public Ministry of Guatemala that threaten democracy and the will of the citizens expressed at the polls. Democracy must prevail," Pedro Sanchez posted on social media site X.
        
        Arevalo on Friday rejected a legal manoeuvre from prosecutors to invalidate his election triumph, calling the effort "perverse" and an "attempted coup".
        
        Ever since anti-corruption crusader Arevalo did much better than expected in June's first-round election, qualifying for the decisive August runoff, he and his centre-left Seed Movement party have faced a series of investigations from the attorney general's office, which has alleged irregularities in the party's registration several years ago.
        
        Spain, which holds the Council of the European Union's rotating presidency, has sought to improve relations between the bloc and Latin America.
