El Salvador, Costa Rica Vote To Elect New Leaders

by Wochit 1:03 mins

Presidential elections in two Central American countries Sunday are both referendums on political stagnation, with voters in Costa Rica deciding whether to oust the long-ruling party, and voters in El Salvador deciding whether to bring it back to power. El Salvador's ruling leftist party faces an uphill battle to keep the presidency after only one term, with critics saying the government of President Mauricio Funes did little to energize a sluggish economy and reduce gang crime. In Costa Rica, a ruling conservative party that is battling corruption allegations is being challenged by a charismatic left-leaning congressman. Experts say both of Sunday's votes will result in runoffs, as neither candidate leading in the polls is likely to get the 50% plus one vote needed to declare victory.
