Guatemala Comedian Wins First Round Of Presidential Election
Jimmy Morales won the most votes during Guatemala's presidential election. But he wasn't able to get enough to become the country's president.By Karen Rodriguez | September 7, 2015
The historic 70 percent turnout for Guatemala's general election on Sunday failed to secure a new leader for a country fed up with government corruption.
None of the 14 candidates were able to get more than 50 percent of the votes needed to become the country's new president.
That means Guatemalans will return to the polls Oct. 25 for a second round of voting. They will choose between the top two candidates from Sunday's election. (Video via Prensa Libre)
