A presidential election was held in Guatemala on 28 March 1936.

A Constituent Assembly was elected in January 1936 and was installed on 8 March. The Assembly drafted a Constitution, article 202 of which allowed the president and vice-president to continue in power until 1 January 1943. “The Constitution is notable for one other factor. It embraced the device of ‘continuismo’ by suspending the articles on the term of office of the president Tiburcio Carías Andino and vice-president and allowing them to remain in power until 1943”.[1]
