Burke Stansbury of CISPES is on the line from Washington with and update on the upcoming Presidential race on March 15 in El Salvador. CISPES is sending a team of 60 observers in an attempt to prevent the ARENA party's attempts at electoral fraud, that marked the January Municipal and Legislative Assembly elections. There are fears that ARENA will stop at nothing to win, in spite of a commanding lead by the opposition FMLN in the popularity stakes.
CISPES is trying to pressure the US government and the new Obama administration to negate the propaganda fear campaign by ARENA claiming that an FMLN electoral victory will lead to 'punishment' by the US.
