78 Alcaldes are Sworn Into Office in the South

Seventy-eight alcaldes from across thirty-nine Maya villages participated in a training workshop spearheaded by the Attorney General’s Office today.  The session served to inform them of their roles and responsibilities under the Alcaldes Jurisdiction Act.  Immediately thereafter, the alcaldes swore their oath of office as administrators of law in their respective communities.  In the months ahead, additional training, including sessions on Maya customary law, will also be held.  Taking part in today’s workshop were the Solicitor General, Crown Counsels from the AG’s ministry, as well as personnel from the Ministry of Rural Development and the Toledo Maya Land Rights Commission.
