The head of the Department of Citizen Registration and Elaboration of Registers (DICEP), Alejandra Chiroy, pointed out that to date 70 percent of the electoral register has been processed.

In this sense, the official announced that the districts of Sacatepéquez, El Progreso, Guatemala and the Central District still need to complete the procedure.

Likewise, Chiroy specified that for the realization of the register for the second round, the information provided by the National Registry of Persons (Renap) regarding the discharge of deceased persons has been taken into account.

According to the TSE, it is a set of improvement actions to be implemented in the ballot, in which Sandra Torres, from the National Unity of Hope (UNE), and Bernardo Arévalo, from Movimiento Semilla, will face each other.

In turn, the entity reported that the Electoral Institute is preparing a report where all these measures must be included, as well as other actions for future electoral processes based on the activities that were developed with the teams of trainers.

In the first round, the district of Guatemala reached the highest number of registered voters with more than 2.1 million citizens, followed by Huehuetenango with 702,953 and Alta Verapaz with 643,396.
