The Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front (FMLN) held on Sunday an act of presentation and proclamation of its presidential formula that will give continuity to the transformations in El Salvador.
For the office of President of the Republic Hugo Martinez was proclaimed, while the choice for the office of Vice President fell on Karina Sosa. If they are favored by the popular vote in the 2019 elections, this would be the third consecutive period that the FMLN is in command of the nation.

The activity was enlivened by human statues and performers in stilts that welcomed the attendees, while the artistic part started with the group "Cumbia Negra", and continued with Pescozada; from Cuba, the group "Buena Fe" closed with Canto por la Paz.
Among the proposals are the expansion of the Cuidad Mujer initiative, a program that the current president has not been able to extend throughout the country, due to blockades of opposition parties.
In addition, he seeks to expand projects that benefit young people, introduce scientific advances in agriculture, and update teachers in digital techniques, among other proposals.
