Clientelism and patronageIn an academic paper on Guatemala’s fledgling political party system, University of Miami professor Omar Sánchez characterizes Guatemalan parties as institutionally weak, short-lived and diffuse, which has a negative impact on the quality of representation and democratic governance.Corruption and clientelism have been the hallmark of the succession of leaders that have been voted into office since the 1996 Peace Accords marked the return of democratic rule after 36 years of civilian strife.With 53.7 percent of Guatemalans living below the poverty line according to World Bank statistics, political leaders have found a fertile ground to buy voters’ support in exchange for the satisfaction of immediate material needs.During election periods, acarreo, or the mass mobilization of political supporters, particularly in rural areas, who are willing to vote for practically any party in exchange for a bag of groceries, fertilizer or a meal, has become an established practice.Voters’ willingness to overlook corrupt leadership if they perceive their material conditions have improved – however slightly – is exemplified by the fact that 75 percent of respondents in a poll published by Prensa Libre on May 4, had a favorable opinion of disgraced former President Alfonso Portillo, who returned to the country in February after serving a prison sentence in the United States for conspiring to use U.S. banks to launder $2.5 million in bribes from the Taiwanese government.Despite his tainted past, Portillo enjoys considerable support among disenfranchised rural and urban Guatemalans due to the fact that he imposed price controls on basic foodstuffs, subsidized electricity rates for the poor, increased the minimum wage and challenged monopolies.

Johan Ordóñez/AFP#RenunciaYaAccording to political scientist Javier Brolo, of the Association for Investigation and Social Studies, it remains to be seen whether the #RenunciaYa (Resign Now) citizen movement will mark the beginning of a political awakening among voters and an awareness of the need to break the vicious cycle of corrupt leadership.“I don’t know to what extent this citizen awakening can compete with clientelist politicians who satisfy immediate needs such as putting food on the table and finding employment, which are very real and pressing in many parts of the country,” Brolo said.Realizing that what the country needs is a systemic overhaul, the call for Pérez Molina to resign has evolved into a demand for the elections to be postponed until Congress approves a series of reforms that guarantee long-lasting change. “En estas condiciones no queremos elecciones” – “We don’t want elections under these conditions” – has become the new rallying cry of the largely urban #RenunciaYa movement.However, Simon Whistler, director of Latin America risk analysis at consultant group Control Risks, believes it would be too optimistic to expect a radical transformation of the political system from one day to the next, and he warns against “placing too much emphasis” on the protests.“This is indicative of a more responsible civil society, but it’s still a relatively small group of the middle class that has got together to lead these protests. You still have much bigger portions of society that are susceptible to the traditional politics of patronage and clientelism,” Whistler said. “It’s one of those long-term processes where we’ll see the effects in 10 or 15 years time.”Read all of our Guatemala coverage here Facebook Comments His first foray into the political arena came in 2011 when he ran for mayor of the municipality of Mixco, Guatemala’s second-largest municipality, with the tiny and now extinct ADN party.Although Morales is not afraid to crack jokes when addressing crowds at political rallies, during a recent interview with Canal Antigua, he was eager to come across as a serious candidate.He appeared unfazed as he was grilled by a panel of six interviewers, demonstrating he is both eloquent and media savvy, but his campaign pledges came across as muddled and simplistic.However, political scientist José Dávila says this might not necessarily weigh against him as his supporters “regard him as an anti-establishment figure and are not too interested in analyzing his proposals.”Morales defined himself as a “nationalist” and blamed corruption on parents’ failure to inculcate values in their children. He also denied that genocide was committed against the Ixil Mayan group during the armed conflict, and said he supported the death penalty and would not legalize abortion.Although his discourse veered towards the far right, Morales underscored his working-class origins and said his mother, a widow, worked as an assistant in a shoe store, and that as a boy, he sold bananas and secondhand clothes in a local market to help support the family.The candidate that is emerging as the dark horse in the race was also eager to downplay the military background of the FCN’s founding members, which include retired army Gen. José Luis Quilo Ayuso, former president of the Guatemalan Association of Military Veterans. GUATEMALA CITY – In the wake oftwo major corruption scandals that have led to seven consecutive weeks of anti-corruption demonstrations, a new poll in the run-up to general elections in September shows right-wing populist Manuel Baldizón still leading. But his popularity has stagnated due to a widespread perception that his administration is likely to be as corrupt as that of current President Otto Pérez Molina’s.Conducted by Costa Rican polling firm Borge y Asociados and published by Contrapoder magazine and Canal Antigua TV channel on June 5, the poll shows 34.5 percent of those surveyed would vote for Baldizón, while 12.9 percent would vote for center-left National Unity of Hope party candidate and former First Lady Sandra Torres, and a surprising 10.4 percent would vote for comedian Jimmy Morales, of the minuscule and under-funded FCN party.The poll has a 95 percent accuracy probability and was carried out from May 21-28, after former Vice President Roxana Baldetti was forced to resign as a result of a massive customs fraud scandal uncovered by the International Commission Against Impunity in Guatemala. After that, the ruling Patriot Party imploded when its candidate, Alejandro Sinibaldi, quit the party and later pulled out of the race altogether.In a clear expression of widespread rejection of the candidates vying for office, 15.1 percent of those surveyed in the latest poll said they would cast a null or blank vote.Morales’ political inexperience has worked in his favor as a growing number of voters regard him as one of the few candidates who have not been tainted by corruption.Born into a working class family from Guatemala City, Morales, 46, has a degree in business administration, a master’s degree in media management and is currently pursuing a doctorate in security and defense studies.Over the past 15 years, his role in the popular comedy series “Moralejas” (“Morals”), in which he appears alongside his brother Sammy, has propelled him to fame.See also: 26 lawyers have been murdered in Guatemala in the past 3 years Related posts:Guatemalan legislative commission recommends lifting President Pérez Molina’s immunity In Guatemala, Pérez Molina claims US conspiracy behind corruption prosecution Guatemala’s Pérez Molina clings to power despite unprecedented pressure to resign Why Guatemala’s Pérez Molina turns a deaf ear to widespread calls for his resignation

followed soon enough — the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award was bestowed upon Sushil just a year later But while many coaches have taken – and indeed been given — credit for the grappler’s success in the form of Dronacharya Awards one man has flown under the radar of the powers that be “India ki kushti ko uthaane me ‘Laado’ ka sabse bada haath hai” says Sushil “You look at the scenario before and after his arrival He took the helm in 2003 and our entire team qualified for the 2004 Athens Olympics Even now Olympic champions and coaches from several countries come to him for counsel” Laado coach saab or simply Georgian Sushil calls him ‘God’ while Olympic bronze medallist Yogeshwar Dutt describes him as the one who taught the Indians “kushti jeetne ka jazba” Vladimer Mestvirishvili should perhaps be known as the man responsible for the biggest moments in Indian men’s freestyle wrestling for close to one-and-a-half decades Since his arrival in 2003 Mestvirishvili’s tutelage has resulted in triumphs at world championships Asian and Commonwealth Games and three Olympic medals After the Sports Authority of India (SAI) did not renew his contract last year at Wrestling Federation of India’s (WFI) behest Mestvirishvili now 73 returned at Sushil’s invitation “I knew he still had a lot more to give to Indian wrestling I got in contact with Olympic Gold Quest and extended an invitation to him He accepted immediately even though he had an offer to be the chief coach in Georgia He turned them down Isko bohot lagaav ho gaya hai India ki kushti se” Mestvirishvili says the Georgia federation tried to woo him not once but three times “I say no every time because I’ve done that bit I worked with the Georgian team from 1982 to 1992 I like it here in India” Fascination with India is only part of the reason In a 2013 interview with Georgian daily Lelo he opened up about a promise made to himself “I like the direction Georgia wrestling is taking But it’s sad that only now my work is being recognised I worked for 10 years as the chief coach but nobody said a word of gratitude despite the fact that we had world European and Olympic champions We had World Cup winners When I left my post I said I would never work in Georgia” Slow-burn love India thus served as an adventure At the end of the 3200-km journey Mestvirishvili was greeted by eager employers WFI and a culture shock One of the many peculiarities that caught him off guard was the self-imposed celibacy observed by wrestlers “When I first went to the camp no wrestler was married This was strange to me but they said wrestlers do not marry I was told that after their career is over they may get married but not when they are wrestling I could not understand that” Then there was the snake invasion at the SAI Centre in Sonepat “One time I killed two snakes in my room This is so surprising What am I supposed to do after a snake comes in my room” Vladimer and his wife Mareya have been in India since 2003 Pics: Praveen Khanna But once he figured out the keys to a healthy stay in India — “respect the traditions don’t touch religion be tolerant” — the Georgian began to see the similarities between the two nations Early in his stint with no national camp and no team to work with Mestvirishvili asked the SAI authorities to deploy him where he could train someone He was sent to Nidani village in Haryana where he ended up doing more than just wrestling “It was a funny incident I don’t remember if it was an off day or something but I was in one of the paddy fields of the village and saw this farmer digging in morning By evening he was still there still doing it I went up to him and asked if I could do it He laughed at me We Georgians also have fields so I just started doing it For the next hour I did his job and I was so happy” While wife Mareya has stayed by his side in India sons Guram and Saigan shifted back to Georgian capital Tbilisi after completing their schooling in Patiala Mestvirishvili recalls how he would coerce Guram to accompany Sushil and Co for early morning runs Sushil remains in awe of how the chubby kid has transformed into a ripped MMA fighter a development that doesn’t exactly thrill Mestvirishvili “MMA is no sport like wrestling I don’t like it One punch here and there you maybe killed But what can I say They won’t listen to me The times are not like when I was growing up” Perhaps another feature that keeps him rooted to India “Here it is such a good tradition If parents say something the children listen” Looking ahead Mestvirishvili would be the first to admit that he never reached his potential as a wrestler Back in the 70s Soviet politics ensured the team was dominated by wrestlers from bigger constituents such as Russia “I have no European championship No world championship” shrugs Mestvirishvili What he does have though is an acute mind for aggressive wrestling “During his initial days at the camp he was trying to teach us fitley (leg lace)” recalls Sushil “One Indian coach said ‘Sir this move wouldn’t work’ Laado invited him to the mat attacked his legs and pinned him in a flash” Incidentally the same manuevre got Yogeshwar his

February 19 2017 Washington: Reflecting on the peaceful transition in one of the oldest democracies of the world the JCCIC has said the theme of Donald Trump’s inauguration is "Uniquely American" which Recognises the symbolic importance of Friday’s event "With each inauguration we embrace this uniquely American ceremony seeing in this extraordinary ritual a reflection of the nation itself In times of peace or war of prosperity or crisis inaugurations strengthen the national resolve to meet each new challenge" the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies (JCCIC) said Donald Trump Reuters "We may consider it routine but the inaugural ceremony remains a uniquely American expression of our constitutional system The peaceful transition between presidential administrations signals that we are united as a people behind an enduring republic" it said reflecting on the theme of this year’s inauguration In 1981 the inaugural ceremony struck President Ronald Reagan as being both commonplace and miraculous "The orderly transfer of authority as called for in the Constitution routinely takes place as it has for almost two centuries and few of us stop to think how unique we really are" Reagan had said his inaugural speech "In the eyes of many in the world this every-four-year ceremony we accept as normal is nothing less than a miracle" he said At the end of the 18th century it was widely believed that Republican form of government was best suited to small homogeneous societies of America However the United States rapidly grew in the 19th century—in geography and population—and our system of government demonstrated its remarkable ability not just to accommodate that diversity but to draw strength from it JCCIC said In his second inaugural address in 1805 President Thomas Jefferson commented on the acquisition of the Louisiana Purchase "The larger our association" he insisted "the less will it be shaken by local passions" Jefferson’s faith in "association" across space would ultimately depend on knitting together the far-flung communities of the nation President James Monroe in his 1817 inaugural address envisioned a network of roads and canals that would cultivate national unity "By thus facilitating the intercourse between the states we shall shorten distances and by making each part more accessible to and dependent on the other we shall bind the Union more closely together" he had said By the end of the 19th century American towns and cities were linked by roads canals and railroads followed by telegraph and telephone wires Modern infrastructure expanded in the 20th century in the form of national highways and in the 21st century with Internet cables and wireless communications Vast distances have been considerably reduced while knowledge opportunity and the shared ideals of purpose ingenuity and equality have been significantly expanded "These greater connections have required bridging the gap between competing political and ideological visions while protecting the political and civil rights of all Americans" it said "With each inauguration we embrace this uniquely American ceremony seeing in this extraordinary ritual a reflection of the nation itself In times of peace or war of prosperity or crisis inaugurations strengthen the national resolve to meet each new challenge" the committee said "With malice toward none with charity for all" President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed in his second inaugural address delivered during the waning days of the Civil War "Let us strive on to finish the work we are in to bind up the nation’s wounds" he said During the depths of the Great Depression President Franklin Roosevelt declared his 1933 inauguration a "day of national consecration" in which "we face the arduous days that lie before us in the warm courage of national unity" President George HW Bush observed in 1989 that on inauguration day "we remember that we are all part of a continuum inescapably connected by the ties that bind" "At the dawn of the 21st century" as President William Clinton proclaimed in his 1997 address Americans had to "shape the forces of the information age and the global society to unleash the limitless power of all our people and yes to form a more perfect Union" "On January 20 2017 we gather at the US Capitol the home of the legislature along with the executive represented by the President and the judiciary embodied by the Chief Justice of the United States who administers the oath It is a meeting of the three branches of the federal government before the people to observe the simple yet momentous ritual of presidential oath taking" JCCIC said Hyderabad: India’s off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin on Sunday became the fastest bowler to claim 250
