Oscar Ortiz may join Sánchez Cerén on FMLN ticket

The next presidential elections in El Salvador don't take place until 2014, but the FMLN is already moving to finalize its presidential ticket.   Yesterday, the FMLN's candidate for president, Salvador Sánchez Cerén, announced that he is proposing Santa Tecla mayor Oscar Ortiz as his running mate.   The former guerrilla commander made the announcement on his Twitter account.

Ortiz is viewed as more moderate than Sánchez Cerén, the current vice president, and many think he might have be the more electable person for the head of the FMLN ticket.
