Guatemala’s President Increasingly Isolated at Home
Local Editor

Guatemala's recognition of occupied al-Quds as the Zionist so-called ‘capital' leaves its President Jimmy Morales with his stock falling at home due to corruption allegations raised by UN-backed investigators.

Jimmy Morales

Defying overwhelming international rejection of US President Donald Trump's decision to move his embassy to the occupied holy city, Guatemala and Honduras were the only nations in the Americas to back him in a UN General Assembly vote last week.

Increasingly isolated at home, Morales won friends In Washington by aligning himself with Trump, although he runs the risk of backlash from Arab countries.

In August, the former TV comedian came under fire from the United Nations, the European Union and the US ambassador in Guatemala for attempting to expel a UN-backed prosecutor seeking to put him on trial for corruption charges.

The investigation into allegations of illicit campaign financing - which followed separate graft probes into members of the president's family-had threatened to condemn Morales to impeachment.

Meanwhile, Morales has to back down over a bid to eject the head of the UN-backed International Commission against Impunity in Guatemala, and his authority has been seriously undermined.
