Guatemala holds presidential election in peace on Sept. 6

(Soundbite) Alejandro Maldonado, Interim President
“I think the sociological phenomenon is worthy to be appreciated. When the media doesn’t respond alone, the social networks are there. So that it is harmony now: social networks and media together can make miracles.”

(Soundbite) Sandra Torres, Presidential Candidate
“I can support social networks, thank God, with transparency. Transparency used to be dismantled and destroyed by the government. Today we are trying to recover it.”

(Soundbite) Mario Tellez, Election Supervisor
“I am obliged to ensure that the vote is done cleanly and in order. If the attendance is one hundred percent, some 340 people will come to this station to cast their ballots (out of about 7.6 million registered voters nationwide).”
