General elections will be held in Guatemala on June 16, 2019, to elect the President and Congress, with a second round of the presidential elections to be held on August 11, 2019, if no candidate wins a majority in the first round.

Incumbent President Jimmy Morales is constitutionally prohibited from running for a second four-year term.[1][2]

Electoral system[edit]

The President of Guatemala is elected using the two-round system.[3]

The 160 members of Congress are elected by two methods; 130 are elected from 22 multi-member constituencies based on the departments, with the remaining 31 elected from a single nationwide constituency. Seats are elected using closed list proportional representation, with seats allocated using the d'Hondt method.[3]

Candidates[edit]

Thelma Aldana's candidature is rejected by the authorities on the grounds of alleged corruption cases concerning her. She denies the accusations and attributes them to what she calls the "pact of the corrupt", composed of politicians and business leaders of the country. A former Attorney General, she had uncovered several major corruption cases. [4]

In April 2019, centre-right candidate Mario Estrada was arrested. He is accused by the American authorities of having made a deal with the Sinaloa cartel - from which he allegedly obtained between 10 and 12 million dollars for his election campaign - and of having ordered the murder of rival candidates. [5]
