El Salvador elections are too close to call

Monday, March 10, 2014

El Salvador's electoral tribunal says that after a preliminary count of the votes, the presidential election remains too close to call, saying it ill take until Thursday to confirm official results.

Preliminary results suggest left-wing candidate Salvador Sanchez Ceren has a lead of 0.22 percentage points over his conservative rival Norman Quijano.

The Supreme Electoral Tribunal asked the candidates to refrain from claiming victory, which both had done on Sunday.
