El Salvador left wins big in March 16 elections

From an email from CISPES L.A.

“Capital city of San Salvador won by FMLN.
10 of 14 major metropolitan cities go to former rebels.
FMLN advances in assembly.

Early results of the March 16 elections in El Salvador have supporters of the FMLN dancing in the streets.  The FMLN [Farabundo Marti Front for National Liberation] swept to victory in ten of the fourteen major cities around the capital, winning the mayor’s offices in San Salvador, Santa Ana, Zacatecaluca, Tejutecupeque and Usulutan.  The FMLN won in the three largest municipalities in the country.  Santa Tecla and Soyapango went to the FMLN by two-to-one margins.

CISPES election monitors in the country reported FMLN victory parties going into the early morning hours as election results clearly indicated a major advance for El Salvador’s Left.  The FMLN carried out the armed struggle in El Salvador from 1980 to 1992 when a peace agreement was signed.  Since the war, the FMLN has made steady advances in the electoral arena as the second most powerful party in the country.”

Brazil, Venezuela, now El Salvador. Latin America is turning Left. Shhh, don’t tell the Bushies.
