LA Salvadoran's Call for Post Electoral Peace
Members of Los Angeles’ Central American community are calling for peace in El Salvador following news that the country’s military might get involved in disputed elections this week.
The runner up in the Salvadoran presidential election is challenging its results, and has asked the country’s electoral tribunal to throw out the results. Norman Quijano of Arena, the right-wing Nationalist Republican Alliance, trailed FMNLF’s Salvador Sanchez Ceren by just 0.22 percent.
With concerns arising over a contracted dispute, organizers within SoCal’s Salvadoran community want the election results honored without violence.
KPFK’s Agnes Radomski has the story.
