En particular, la URNG debera tener en cuenta que el de la izquierda democratica no es un espacio vacio: desde las elecciones de noviembre de 1995 se encuentra parcialmente ocupado por el Frente Democratico por una Nueva Guatemala (FDNG) que representa el primer esfuerzo de constituir una izquierda social de presencia parlamentaria y municipal.
