International News: Salvadoran President registers for re-election despite constitutional objections

Posted: Monday, June 26, 2023. 11:31 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Today, President of El Salvador, Nayib Bukele registered for re-election for next year’s Presidential elections.

The announcement comes despite objections from legal experts who argue that El Salvador’s constitution prohibits his candidacy.

According to the Associated Press, the New Ideas party made the announcement today.

Last September, Bukele announced that he planned to seek a second five-year term.

El Salvador’s Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court ruled in 2021 that his candidacy for reelection was permitted and ordered the electoral court to allow it.

However, attorneys say that Bukele’s candidacy would violate at least four articles of the constitution, including article 154, which states: “The presidential term will be five years and will begin and end on June 1, without the person who has held the presidency being able to continue in their functions even one more day.”

Polls show that the majority of Salvadorans support Bukele and his crackdown on gangs.

Several communities that lived under the constant extortion and violence of the gangs are returning to normal life following the crackdown on street gangs.
