Paraguay’s Future in a Turbulent Continent
On April 30, 2023, Paraguayans will go to the polls to elect a president, vice president, all 80 members of the Chamber of Deputies, all 45 members of the Senate, and all department governors and assembly members. Party primaries were held on December 18, 2022, when voters selected Efraín Alegre as the candidate from the Concertación coalition and Santiago Peña as the candidate for the ruling Colorado Party. The Georgetown Americas Institute is pleased to welcome Santiago Peña for a discussion on Paraguay’s presidential race. Peña will address his plans for the country and his view of Paraguay’s role and future in the context of shifting regional politics. The conversation will be moderated by Erick Langer.
