El Salvador go for President Poll

Presidential election will be held in El Salvador today, with four candidates contesting the post.

Incumbent President Salvador Ceren cannot run for a second consecutive term under the country’s legislation. Over 5.2 millions citizens have registered to vote.

To win in the first round, a candidate must secure over 50 percent of the vote.

Otherwise, a run-off will be held on March 10, with two top candidates facing each other. The president is elected for a five-year period.
