Through social networks, Bernardo Arévalo reported the date he will present to his Cabinet.

Through social networks, Bernardo Arévalo, Guatemala’s president-elect, announced that he will officially present the members of his Cabinet of Government on January 8.

  • “Here we are finishing a working session with the Cabinet, which is already complete,” Arévalo said in a video posted on his X account, formerly known as Twitter.
  • He also mentioned the date on which he will present his entire Cabinet: “Has it been a very good working session.” We’re very happy. On January 8, we will make the Cabinet presentation.
  • During the video, the faces of future ministers who will accompany Bernardo Arévalo and Karin Hernández from January 14, 2024, were not shown.

What you should know: Bernardo Arévalo came to the presidency thanks to the Movimiento Semilla party last August, beating Sandra Torres of the National Unity of Hope party in the second round.

  • The election of Arévalo has been surrounded by uncertainty after the Public Prosecutor’s Office requested three times the withdrawal of his immunity.
  • The first request was for the case called Toma USAC: Political Booty, the second for the Corruption Seed Movement case, where he was accused of money laundering and other assets, in addition to pointing out various anomalies in the party’s constitution.
  • The actions of the MP have generated uncertainty, as it has also been mentioned that the elections should not have been valid due to the anomalies found.
