The President Of El Salvador Nayib Bukele Leaves The Presidency For 6 Months

Ricardo Paulino

In fact, this is a period of absence that the legislative assembly approved, allowing the president to focus on the next presidential elections on February 4, 2024 in order to obtain re-election to his second term. Bukele comes as a favourite, and has high popularity ratings in the country, in which polls give between 68% and 95% victory for the current president of the Central American nation.

For the president's temporary absence from office, the legislative assembly also approved his replacement, who is the president's current private secretary, Claudia Juana Rodriguez de Guevara, thus becoming the first woman to preside over El Salvador, whose term will end on the 31, 2024.

Among Bukele’s main achievements are:

• the heavy hand against gangs, arresting more than 60 thousand people since 2019

• the largest mega prison on the American continent built to house 40 thousand inmates

• the remodelling of surf city, the new surf mecca

• the commitment to cryptocurrencies to boost the economy

• the inauguration of the new national library

• The commitment to creating Salvadoran start-ups

What was once one of the most unsafe countries in the world, today closes the year 2023 with 2.2% homicides per 100 thousand inhabitants, when just 8 years ago the percentage was 105.2%. Clearly, El Salvador is safer with the recent policies implemented by the Bukele administration.

On the other hand, critics of the measure of Nayib Bukele's absence in the Executive Branch, and his high possibility of being re-elected President in February of next year, have emphasized that the measure is unconstitutional and undemocratic, since in 2021 the Supreme Court allowed the candidacy for the second term of an acting president, which was not previously proposed in the Salvadoran Constitution, and whose president of the nation had to wait 10 years to be re-elected.

This was taken to consultation by the citizens, in which they accepted the modification of the Magna Carta to allow the implementation of the presidential re-election process starting with the Bukele administration, if he becomes the winner of the next electoral elections next year. February month.


Likewise, some world leaders are cautious about what could happen in El Salvador, since they presume that this would open the doors of an Authoritarian State to Nayib Bukele and the possible loss of democracy in the Central American nation.
