Guatemala: Presidential candidate's party suspended.

The political party Semilla, led by presidential candidate Bernardo Arévalo, has been suspended at the request of the Public Ministry for allegedly affiliating individuals without their consent, stated Rafael Curruchiche, the special prosecutor against impunity, on Wednesday.

The surprising announcement comes just as the Supreme Electoral Court (TSE) is expected to announce the official results of the first round of the presidential election held on June 25, in which Bernardo Arévalo and former First Lady of Guatemala Sandra Torres emerged as the top two candidates, according to preliminary results.

Presidential candidate Bernardo Arévalo de León assured that despite the suspension of his left-wing political party, Movimiento Semilla, he will participate in the runoff election following the results of the first round.

"Today, after a long wait, we can announce to the people of Guatemala that we are officially embarking on the path to the second round," Arévalo stated in a press conference.
