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

Yesterday, the Supreme Electoral Tribunal of El Salvador
officially announced the results of municipal and legislative

elections held on March 16.
