\ Guatemala’s political parties end up paying an average of $3.33 for each vote in the presidential elections.\ \ That compares with only 14 US cents for each vote in Chile and more than the $2.86 that it costs in the United States.\ \ The Acción Ciudadana citizens’ group reports that the political parties spent $15 million in six weeks in the area around Guatemala City.\ \ \ \ Original source (in Spanish): El Periódico\ \ \ \ \
