Oh Yeah, talk about joking your way to the Presidency, albeit with a good dose of Passion for your people. That is the story of Jimmy Morales, a comedian and actor, who just became the newly elected President of Guatemala.
Cue for our own Ali Baba? ? 😀
Morales, with no experience in government, won the run-off vote in Guatemala’s presidential election.
Jimmy Morales got more than double the votes of ex-first lady Sandra Torres, who is seen by many as part of the country’s unpopular political elite.
Ms Torres admitted defeat once the margin of Mr Morales’ win was clear.
Mr Morales received 67.4% of the vote and Ms Torres 32.6%.
Jimmy Morales is an actor, known for Looking for Palladin (2008) and Fe (2011).
