Guatemala - golpe presidencial em câmara lenta?

Jimmy Morales, a President Against Democracy in Guatemala, por Francisco Goldman (New York Times):

An unpopular president is backed by hard-line military, right-wing parties and conservative elites. He disdains democratic norms and institutions, especially when they investigate his family and top government officials. He recently went on national television to propose drastic measures to solve a crisis many accuse him of provoking. His claims were later exposed by the media as false.

This president is Jimmy Morales of Guatemala, a former television comedian. On Jan. 7, he held a news conference where he announced his decision to withdraw from a United Nations-backed anti-corruption commission, giving its prosecutors a day to leave the country.
