While the US is buzzing about who will take the Democratic nomination ticket, Paraguay is also buzzing about Politics. We are six days (April 20) away from the presidential elections in
There are four persons running.
1. Fernado Lugo, an ex-bishop who gave up his vows two years ago to enter into politics.
2. Blanca Ovelar, the first woman to ever run, representing the red party (currently in power)
3. Lino Oviedo, the man that was involved in the 1989 coup that overthrew a 35 year dictator
4. Pedro Fadul, a business man who appeared in the political scene four years ago, after leaving his business.
CNN recently held a debate where the four candidates presented their platforms.
This week at the radio station we presented the four candidates and their platforms. While none of the candidates is evangelical, We pray that God would guide Paraguayans to vote for the candidate that is most honest, who loves Paraguay to the core and who truly wants to help lead the nation out of poverty and shackles. We ask you to pray for Paraguay this week too, especially for peaceful, elections without frauds.
