Cartes confirmed as Paraguay's president-elect

ASUNCION,- Horacio Cartes was officially declared on Friday winner of the April 21 elections by Paraguay's Supreme Court of Electoral Justice.

Cartes, who represents the conservative Colorado Party, was elected with 46 percent of the votes in the elections and will be sworn in on Aug. 15.

"Paraguay expects a great government and I assure you that we will not rest until there is equality and social justice in Paraguay," Cartes said at a Paraguayan Central Bank gathering of government officials and lawmakers.

Cartes also promised to reform the Colorado Party that was voted out of power in 2008 after six decades of consecutive rule for alleged rampant corruption, saying he will lead "a serious, honest, capable, visionary and patriotic government."

On regional affairs, Cartes said he wanted Paraguay to play a role in all regional integration organizations.

Paraguay was suspended by two regional organizations - the Southern Common Market (Mercosur) and the Union of South American Nations (Unasur) - for failing to uphold democratic principles after a parliamentary coup by right-wing legislators ousted President Fernando Lugo in June, 2012.

The pro-business president-elect also pledged to promote a policy of dialogue with Brazil despite their political differences.

For years, Paraguay has been clamoring to raise the price of the energy it sells to Brazil from the bi-national Itaipu hydroelectric damn located on the border of the two countries.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
