Elections, part 2

A quick note: I promised to say more about the outcome of the legislative and mayoral elections, and forgot to do that. The basic story is that the two major parties, ARENA (right) and FMLN (left) both came away with bragging points, while the country continues to be sharply divided. For more detailed results and an excellent analysis, visit Tim's El Salvador blog. Now the focus is on the Presidential election, to be held on March 15th: Mauricio Funes, of the FMLN, has been in the lead, but recent polls show ARENA's Rodrigo Avila gaining ground.
