Embassy urges patience in awaiting results

In these tense moments awaiting the results of the runoff elections celebrated this Sunday, the United States urges Salvadorans to continue demonstrating patience.

The preliminary results indicate a very close election.  We hope that the Supreme Electoral Tribunal as well as the competing parties use the legal tools of the electoral process to arrive at a peaceful conclusion that respects the will expressed by the Salvadoran people.
