Officially in El Salvador, the proselytizing campaign began for the elections to renew the Legislative Assembly, delegates to the Central American Parliament and Municipal Councils at the national level.

El Salvador has held free and democratic elections since the promulgation of the current Political Constitution in force since 1983, after a coup that ended the military dictatorship in 1979, but that led to a civil war in 1980 and ended in 1992 with the signing of the Peace Accords.
