Troubled El Salvador finds a very popular president
The mess faced by Mauricio Funes when he was elected president of El Salvador last year suggested he was in for a bumpy ride.
El Salvador is not an easy place to govern. Yet 18 months later 79 percent of voters back Funes, making him Latin America’s most popular leader.
The president has fulfilled his supporters hopes on social policy, but businessmen are satisfied that his visit to Cuba in October was aimed at importing cheap medicines, not the revolution.
