El Salvador swears in new President

Monday, June 2, 2014

Salvador Sánchez Ceren was sworn in as El Salvador's President Sunday, the first former guerrilla to lead the Central American nation.

Sanchez Ceren, 69, began his five-year term promising "honor, austerity, efficiency and transparency" at the inauguration ceremony attended by 13 heads of state or government.

Sanchez Ceren won a narrow victory March 9 over Norman Quijano of the Nationalist Republican Alliance, which had governed El Salvador for most of the past two decades.
