Retired army general Otto Perez Molina has won the presidential runoff in Guatemala, news reports said on Monday.

With more than 90 percent of ballots already counted, Molina is 9,8 percentage points ahead of his rival, businessman Manuel Baldizon.

During the pre-election campaign, Molina signaled his readiness to crack down on those involved in organized crime in Guatemala, which has the highest rates of infant and maternal mortality in Central America.
