Another pro-Israel conservative comes to power in Guatemala. “He who is Israel’s enemy is Guatemala’s enemy” says President-elect Alejandro Giammattei.
Conservative, pro-Israel Giammattei elected Guatemala president
By AFP and TOI Staff,
Conservative Alejandro Giammattei was elected as Guatemala’s president on Sunday, defeating former first lady Sandra Torres in a runoff, the central American country’s electoral court said.
With the results being updated in real time on the court’s website, the institution’s president, Julio Solorzano, declared the result “already irreversible.”
Giammattei will succeed corruption-tainted outgoing President Jimmy Morales, who leaves office in January. “The aim is fulfilled,” Giammattei said earlier.
He had polled almost 58.5 percent with a lead of 550,000 votes and only a few thousand left to count when the court declared him the victor.
