Right demands recount in El Salvador

SAN SALVADOR — Police blocked hundreds of supporters of the conservative candidate in El Salvador’s presidential election from reaching a hotel where electoral authorities were doing a final count yesterday for the razor-thin runoff contest.

Supporters of Norman Quijano, candidate of the Nationalist Republican Alliance, or ARENA, carried signs reading “Vote by vote, tally sheet by tally sheet” to press their demands that all ballots from Sunday’s election be recounted.

The initial count showed former leftist guerrilla fighter Salvador Sánchez Ceren of the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front ahead of Quijano by less than 7,000 votes out of nearly three million votes cast.
