Rigoberta Menchu running for president of Guatemala
Great. Another lying leftist fraud.

Guatemala City, Feb 12 (EFE).- Indian leader and Nobel peace laureate Rigoberta Menchu announced Monday the creation of an indigenous political party and her decision to run for the Guatemalan presidency in September's election. "In the political history of Guatemala, we the indigenous people have exercised our right to elect, but not to be elected, and the time has now come to do so," Menchu said during a press conference at her home in the Guatemalan capital. Indians represent 42 percent of Guatemala's population of 13 million, with mestizos constituting the next-biggest segment. Menchu said she still has not decided which party's banner she will carry in the presidential race, but stressed she will only affiliate with an organization that is willing to embrace the agenda of the indigenous movement. Her candidacy for the presidency, Menchu explained, is backed to start off with by the Winaq political movement, an indigenous political organization that bills itself as "a choice that is different from the traditional political parties." Should her electoral plans proceed, Menchu will become the first indigenous woman in the political history of this Central American country to seek the presidency.
