Guat President Jimmy Morales Walks of Talk Show Set After He is Grilled About Issues

President Jimmy Morales from Guatemala has been making the media rounds in respect of the upcoming referendum which takes place this Sunday in Guatemala. Over the weekend, he was in the Peten area and on Monday night, he appeared on TV Azteca in a programme called Hechos with Ana Lucia Masariegos.   The president was grilled about a number of issues. He spoke about the invitation he extended to PM Barrow to attend his inauguration and said there was a good relationship between them and while he doesn’t speak to his counterparts every day, the relationship is there. But the interview, about twenty minutes in length, did not go as smoothly for the president who appeared irritated at the line of questioning. When pressed on how his government was prepared to do if Belize did not hold a referendum, he became annoyed; he interrupted the interview, delivered a parting shot and then walked off the set.

“…but the issue is the territorial claim. What will you all do to convince them?”

“But if you know the answer, why don’t you tell it to them. You keep interrupting me.”

 

Ana Lucia Masariegos

“I am not interrupting, president. We are just asking you the questions.”

“Well, this is my message to the people of Guatemala. This being the reason why I’m here and with this I’ll leave: People of Guatemala, thank you for being attentive to the referendum that will take place on April fifteenth. The fifth of April will be a historic moment. In 1773, discussions began concerning this issue. In 2018, this generation has the opportunity to not pass on this problem to our children. The decision will be yours. It is your right; it is your civic duty. Thank you and may God bless you. Good night.”

 

Ana Lucia Masariegos

“Thank you Mister President. He joined us in our first interview regarding the importance of the referendum, asking all Guatemalans to participate this Sunday, voting for Guatemala and putting an end to this age old problem.”

 

After the interview, Masariegos took to Twitter saying that citizens have the right and the obligation to question government officials; in particular, if it is done with respect.

    Ana Lucia Masariegos knows very well that Belize in no fool, and also knows that ICJ is all bullshit for Guatemala. So asking Jimmy very carefully makes good sense for Guatemala, hence exposing Jimmy`s moronic hallucinations.
    Belize will not NOT got to ICJ.
    WE PREFER A MILLION TIMES THAT ENGLAND TAKE BACK BELIZE, NOT A FUCKING CHAPIN CLOWN !!!!
