Paraguay Makes Security Plans for Upcoming Elections

ASUNCION – Paraguay’s national police chief and 40 district commanders from across the country met on Friday with the top officials of the TSJE electoral court to outline security measures for the April 22 elections.

“April 22 and the days leading up to it will surely be a period of civic celebration,” TSJE head Jaime Bestard said. “The Paraguayan people will display once again the maturity they have reached, as well as the transcendence of the electoral process and the importance of freely deciding who their new authorities will be.”

National Police chief Luis Carlos Rojas said that the law enforcement agency he commands will work with the TSJE in order to guarantee a peaceful election and to prove that the country is equal to greater challenges.

The head of the TSJE also said that Paraguay’s general elections will be in the “global spotlight,” adding that several international election observation missions will be present in the country.

Among such organizations are the European Union Election Observation Mission (EUEOM) and the Inter-American Union of Electoral Organizations – both of which are already in the country – as well as representatives of the Organization of American States, who are set to arrive in Paraguay shortly.

Paraguayans will go to the polls to elect the president and vice president, members of Congress and provincial governors.
