This is viewer supported news

For ten years, Washington and the El Salvadoran army fought a
brutal and expensive war against the rebel Farabundo Marti
Liberation Front or FMLN. Today the battleground has shifted
away from the rural killings fields to the electoral arena. But
the antagonists are the same — the FMLN on the left, and the death
squad-linked ARENA party on the right.

Yesterday, the Supreme Electoral Tribunal of El Salvador
officially announced the results of municipal and legislative
elections held on March 16. And the now legal FMLN is
claiming a resounding victory.

Joining us to talk about the elections in El Salvador is
Cherrene Horazuk, the executive director of the Committee in Solidarity
with the People of El Salvador. She just returned from El
Salvador where she was monitoring local and municipal
elections held on March 16.
