    Background: SAN SALVADOR AND USULUTAN ROAD, EL SALVADOR

    El Salvador's Democratic Christian Party met on March 20 in San Salvador to elect a nominee for the forthcoming elections proposed for December. There was a rousing welcome for candidates, Foreign Minister Fidel Chavez Mena and former President Jose Napoleon Duarte. After delegates failed to agree on a nomination, the two candidates appealed to the convention to allow them to decide privately. This was agreed to avoid a party split. Meanwhile guerrilla activity in El Salvador has continued unabated. IN many areas the rebel troops have been putting pressure on private and public transport in an attempt to sabotage the economy. Armed guerrillas set up road blocks such as this one on the main road to Usulutan province. Often the driver have to pay for safe conduct, sometime their vehicles are destroyed, or the loads re confiscated.
