GUATEMALA - Divorce and presidential political calculations

Guatemalan justice confirmed March 21 that the presidential couple had launched steps to divorce by mutual consent. It is primarily a political decision, notes the newspaper in Guatemala City. Sandra Torres filed her petition for separation on March 11, three days after announcing she intended to attend the next presidential election in late 2011, to succeed her husband, Alvaro Colom.

But the Constitution prohibits relatives of the incumbent president to run.
