President of Guatemala accuses Árevalo de León of promoting protests

“For my part, with the aim of helping to get out of the crisis to which it has led us (he said in reference to the current president, Alejandro Giammattei), I am fully willing, as president-elect, to accompany as a witness the dialogue mediated by the Organization of American States (OAS),” stated the leader of the Semilla Movement.

In turn, Arévalo called to listen to and respond to the demands of the organizations that have led the demonstrations, including the ancestral authorities of the indigenous peoples, which, he assured, are essential for a solution.

At the same time, he asked Giammattei to proceed with the dismissal of Porras in response to the demand of the people who have been protesting for more than a consecutive week.

“The people have demonstrated that they are fully capable of making their voices heard, loud and clear. You just need to listen, Mr. President,” Arévalo stated, while he pointed out that the head of state's silence constitutes “an insult to the people.”

“Throughout this entire process, you, Dr. Giammattei, have remained silent. And when he has deigned to speak to the people, he has done so to offend them,” he highlighted.

The protests broke out in the Central American nation after the Public Ministry seized voting records in an unprecedented procedure and carried out raids on the headquarters of the Supreme Electoral Tribunal and the Semilla Movement, whose candidate won the elections held in June and August.
