GUATEMALA CITY, June 16: Corruption-weary Guatemalans were set to elect a new president on Sunday after a tumultuous campaign that saw two leading candidates barred from taking part and the top electoral crimes prosecutor forced to flee the country, fearing for his life.
Gang violence, poverty and streams of US-bound migrants have dominated campaigning in Central America's most populous country, where a crowded field of 19 candidates is vying to succeed outgoing president Jimmy Morales. The country's top anti-corruption campaigner, former attorney general Thelma Aldana, is not among them.     -AFP
