Lara updates us on the looming elections next year in El Salvador. A double barrelled election with the regional and state elections separated by less than a month from the Presidential election in March. The governing party ARENA has already tried to change electoral law to prevent international observers arriving - an important issue when it is understood that El Salvador does not have the equivalent of a domestic organization to oversee elections. Perhaps it has something to do with the commanding, and growing lead of popular support for the opposition FMLN.
