More about Guatemala
- USAERS: Modern history of Guatemala from World War I to today, covering all major events on politics, economy, society, and technology.
The constitution that came into force on January 15, 1986 (revised several times) defines Guatemala as a presidential republic with a multi-party system. The head of state, head of government and commander-in-chief of the armed forces is the president, who is directly elected for 4 years (re-election not possible). He appoints and dismisses the members of the cabinet. The legislature lies with the unicameral parliament (Congreso de la República), whose 160 members are elected for 4 years (mixture of majority and proportional representation). Congress can reject a presidential veto with a two-thirds majority.
The conservative Alejandro Giammattei (* 1956) has been president since January 2020. Of the 16 ministers in his cabinet, only two are women. Giammattei wants to take action against corruption, widespread poverty and violent crime among youth gangs (so-called maras).
The national flag was introduced in 1871 and last modified in 1997. It has vertical blue-white-blue stripes with the coat of arms in the middle. Blue stands for justice and loyalty, white for purity and honesty.
The coat of arms introduced on September 12, 1968 shows a gold scroll with the inscription “Libertad 15 de Septiembre de 1821” in front of two crossed swords and rifles. The swords are a symbol of justice and sovereignty, the guns stand for the will of the people to defend the freedom they have won. The quetzal bird sitting on the roll is the symbol of independence because it can only live in freedom; at the same time the bird reminds of the native residents of the country. The scroll is framed by branches of laurel.
The national holiday on September 15 commemorates the gaining of independence in 1821.
Important forces in the broad spectrum of parties are the Unidad Nacional de Esperanza (UNE, German National Unit of Hope; founded 2001), the group Libertad Democrática Renovada (LIDER, German Renewed Democratic Freedom; formed in 2009 as a split from the UNE), the Frente de Convergencia Nacional (FCN – Nación, German Front of National Unity; founded 2008), the Partido Patriota (PP, German Patriotic Party; founded 2001) and the Todos party (German Alle, founded 2012).
The most important umbrella organizations include the Central General de Trabajadores de Guatemala (CGTG, founded 1986), the Confederación de Unidad Sindical de Guatemala (CUSG, founded 1983) and the Unión Sindical de Trabajadores de Guatemala (UNSITRAGUA, founded 1985). The Unidad de Acción Sindical y Popular (UASP, founded in 1988) includes 40 trade union associations as well as human rights, farmers and women’s organizations.
