Guatemalan first lady to divorce for presidential bid
London, Mar 22 (ANI): Guatemala's first lady Sandra Torres de Colom is ending her eight-year marriage so she can seek to succeed her husband as president, according to a court official.
Guatemalan President Alvaro Colom and his wife have filed for divorce.
Judiciary spokesman Edwin Escobar said divorce proceedings began on Monday between Sandra and Alvaro, who cannot run for re-election, reports the Telegraph.
If both parties agree, the divorce could be final in about a month.
Guatemala's constitution bans close relatives of the president from running for the presidency.
Torres announced March 8 that she would be the presidential candidate of the governing National Unity for Hope party in the September election. (ANI)
