Leftist Party Wins Salvadoran Vote – NYTimes.com


New York Times: “…Mauricio Funes, a former television reporter, declared himself the winner before F.M.L.N. campaign workers chanting “yes, we could” at the Sheraton Hotel as supporters on the street waved flags and honked car horns in celebration.

“This is the happiest night of my life,” Mr. Funes said. “And I hope it is also the night of greatest hope for El Salvador.”

Two hours later, Mr. Funes’s conservative opponent, Rodrigo Ávila, conceded defeat. “These are the ups and downs of democracy,” said Mr. Ávila , the former national police chief. His party, the Nationalist Republican Alliance, known as Arena, had won the presidency four times since 1989…”

How things change, El Salvador has now gone to the Left!
