Guatemala City, by Brenda Larios -AGN- The Government of Guatemala reiterated through the Transition Commission its commitment to move forward with an orderly, transparent and efficient process. 

The Executive branch issued a press release highlighting that the recent meeting with the elected authorities’ transition team fulfills President Alejandro Giammattei’s instructions for an efficient, orderly, and transparent transition.

The Government also reiterated the concrete actions taken towards the transfer of power on January 14, 2024, as mandated by the Constitution of Guatemala.

The Methodology 

The Transition Process Methodology was created for this purpose. This technical tool was developed with the support of the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean -ECLAC-.

The Director of the Secretariat of Planning and Programming of the Presidency (Segeplan), Keila Gramajo Vilchez, stated, “The transition of government in democratic countries, such as Guatemala, allows for the transfer of strategic, technical and administrative information, and even operations, which provides for the continuity of the government’s actions.

The Transition Process Methodology tool includes:

  • Sectorial meetings
  • Transition schedule
  • Transition stages and actors
  • Project data
  • Transition Report

Information Delivery

Creating a digital platform constituted another of the actions carried out in this process. This tool facilitates access to information from 87 institutions that report directly to the Executive branch.

The digitalization of information seeks to adapt the government to today’s technological revolution. At least 153 institutions were trained on the guidelines to deliver digital information and on the transition process promoted by the central government.

As technical coordinator of the transition, the Secretariat of Planning and Programming of the Presidency -Segeplan prioritized printing 53 institutional folders with non-public information.
