    With El Salvador's presidential election on February 2nd fast approaching, polls continue to show a dead heat between the FMLN's Salvador Sánchez Cerén and ARENA's Norman Quijano.  While both candidates are receiving comparable levels of support, they offer differing visions for El Salvador's future. From dealing with the maras and drug trafficking to stimulating economic growth, the leading candidates are arguing for distinct policy prescriptions to address El Salvador's challenges.  Join us as Doug Farah, who will be visiting El Salvador in the run-up to the election, shares his views on the upcoming election. Mr. Farah has over 30 years of experience working in El Salvador.  Given the likelihood of a run-off election on March 9, this will be the first of a two-part series.

    Open to the public; however, seating is limited.  To RSVP, send name and affiliation to the Americas Program at americas@csis.org
