Election Dividing El Salvador's Churches

Ad Feedback

CWN.org - Voters in the Central American nation of El Salvador go to the polls to elect a new president this week.

A victory for the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front candidate Mauricio Funes could mean a shift to the left.

The FMLN is a political party formed from the remnants of a rebel army that fought the El Salvadoran government for 12 years.

Both major parties have been courting evangelicals, who represent about 30 percent of the population.

The church has been strongly divided over the election, with poorer congregations favoring the leftist candidate Funes.
