At the invitation of the Government of Guatemala, the European Union established a mission to observe the general elections in Guatemala in 2007.
These general elections (presidential, legislative and municipal) were the sixth elections since the return to democracy in 1985.
Wolfgang Kreissl-Dörfler, Member of the European Parliament, was Chief of Mission.
The observers were deployed throughout the country. They met government and electoral officials, candidates and political parties, civil society representatives and the media.
