New Report on Elections in El Salvador

NACLA, Posted: Mar 12, 2009

After 17 years since the end of El Salvadors civil war, the leftist Farabundo Mart National Liberation Front (FMLN) is poised to accomplish what its guerrilla predecessors never did: Takeover the national government. Reliable polls unanimously project that FMLN candidate Mauricio Funes will win the March 15 presidential elections. What all this means for El Salvador and Latin America is the subject of the new report, "The 2009 El Salvador Elections: Between Crisis and Change." A victory by Funes would break 20 years of one-party rule by the Nationalist Republican Alliance (ARENA), opening a new progressive chapter in the country's long, violent history of war and dictatorships. If the FMLN wins, El Salvador will be joining an ever-growing group of left-leaning government's in Latin America.
