Update from El Salvador

Presidential elections were held yesterday in El Salvador. Although votes are still being counted, as of this morning the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front (FMLN) party – formed by former guerilla fighters from the country’s 12 year civil war – appears to be ahead in the voting. The election results will have an impact on the lives of ordinary Salvadorians including those in the Episcopal Church and our sister parish Santa Maria Virgen.

The Washington Post has an article in today’s paper here.

Also, Cristosal – the US Episcopal Church’s foundation for El Salvador – keeps a page with news updates here.

If you have a further interest in learning more about issues of poverty and human rights in El Salvador, Cristosal has pointed us to a new website titled El Salvador Update.
