El Salvador leader replaces finance and economy ministers

Tuesday, March 20, 2018

El Salvador’s President Salvador Sanchez Ceren replaced the ministers of finance and the economy after the ruling FMLN party suffered a historic defeat in elections at the start of the month.

The party led by former Marxist rebels suffered its biggest defeat since it first competed in polls in El Salvador, which has the slowest growing economy in Central America and is struggling with heavy debts.
