Salvadoran presidential election Dates 2019

Salvadoran presidential election Date: 3 Feb 2019 

The government of El Salvador is a presidential representative democratic republic.

El Salvador elects its head of state – the President of El Salvador – directly through a fixed-date general election whose winner is decided by an absolute majority. If an absolute majority (50% + 1) is not achieved by any candidate in the first round of a presidential election, then a run-off election is conducted 30 days later between the two candidates who obtained the most votes in the first round. The presidential period is five years. Consecutive re-election is not permitted, though previously elected presidents may run for a second, non-consecutive term.

Presidential elections will be held in El Salvador on 3 February 2019, with the second round in March if no candidate wins an outright majority
