El Salvador: Bukele gets greenlight to run for re-election

Source: Digital Journal [Canada]

“El Salvador’s top court Friday said populist President Nayib Bukele would be allowed to run for a second term, despite the country’s constitution prohibiting the head of state from serving two consecutive terms in office. The Supreme Court decision will allow Bukele to run for a second term in 2024 — potentially making him the Central American nation’s first president to serve more than five years in office since the 1950s.” (09/04/21)
