Post-election Report: Presidential and Legislative elections in El Salvador

With 70.25% of the votes counted, President Nayib Bukele (Nuevas Ideas) comfortably won reelection in the first round of the presidential elections, obtaining 83.14%. Thus, Bukele, who is under license to compete in these elections, renewed his mandate for the period 2024-2029. He will be inaugurated on June 1.

Furthermore, the first projections of the results in the Legislative Assembly indicate that his party will obtain around 58 out of the 60 possible seats. Thus, Nuevas Ideas would retain the qualified majority it currently holds, but without the need of allies. The new Assembly will take office on May 1.
