Temporary Revocation of President-Elect’s Party Suspension by Guatemala Electoral Tribunal

GUATEMALA CITY—Guatemala’s electoral tribunal said Sunday it had temporarily revoked a suspension order against President-elect Bernardo Arevalo’s Semilla party, which had sowed confusion about his victory in the days after the election.

Electoral officials, in a document, said they nulled on Saturday the suspension order through October. It was not immediately clear if Semilla would face the suspension order again after that period.

Mr. Arevalo, who campaigned on pledges to tackle corruption, won the Aug. 20 second-round run-off election. However, just before electoral tribunal officials declared Mr. Arevalo the victor, Semilla was notified that a branch of the tribunal suspended the party over registration flaws.
