"Phil Mercer. Speaking to us from Sydney. Listening to NewsHour from the BBC. I'm Rossiya Akbal now to El Salvador where a thirty seven year old political outsider. Naib bouquet Lee has just won his country's presidential election. At this time we can announce with certainty. We won the presidency. Mr. bouquet secured an outright victory in the first round of the big margin over candidates from the country's main political parties. So who is he does he have what it takes to solve the problems of a country with one of the highest murder rates in the world. That's beat to Jeff fail who is vice president for programs at the Washington office on Latin America, it's a human rights advocacy organization. Welcome to NewsHour, just remind us of the extent to which this is a really challenging country to be president. All let's look at the violence. I right. I think that's a really important place to start a cellular has one of the highest murder rates in the world. It's dropped a little bit in the last couple of years. But that still means it's near the top of the list for countries not in a war zone. Gang violence is a serious problem corruption and organized, drug trafficking or serious problems. And governments for years have been struggling to address this problem in heaven made much progress and so the significance of the victory for this man is is what in that context? So that's a really good question. He ran as a political outsider. He ran outside the two party system of the left and the right that of alternately dominated the country for the last twenty years, and in many ways, he's an unknown. And on this issue, particularly in the know when he won this election as rejecting the old system the old way of doing things, and he would this election campaigning against corruption. Now, I think he's going to take do some good things on the corruption issue. I think it's going to be a big challenge for him to figure out how to move forward and the problem of crime violence, and certainly when he was mayor of San Salvador, they were allegations that the. He was in cahoots with gangs. That's right. I mean that just blew Kelly, but frankly, every major political candidate in this election, and in previous ones has privately dealt with a paid off or worked with gangs in order to secure votes. Try and win elections. Okay. So he's so sorry finish thought though. So that I mean, I think that kind of indicates the reality the street gangs are huge political as well as criminal forces in all Salvadoran that's part of the challenge any any strategy is going to have to address. So he's thirty seven years old. Tell us a little bit more about him. Boo. Kelly comes from a fairly well to do Salvadoran families sympathetic to the left, historically, he. Entered politics. I don't know eight or ten years ago on the political party of the left. Ran a small town mayor then was elected as mayor of San Salvador, pretty ambitious guy had a political fight with the Milan. The party. He was in and. They pushed him out. He ran as an independent candidate. And as a young and social media oriented Kelly. Fascinating lee. He did not participate in the political debates with the other parties. He did not give many interviews to the press. He really one through charisma and social media. He's got a really large following on his Facebook page. Absolutely. Yes. And far different than all the other candidates real appeal to young people in the next generation. But also in many ways, you know, he won on image, and charisma and pieces of his program are quite clear. Okay. So we'll wait to see what he might or might not do and whether it's rooted in any ideological base, but what about the relationship with the United States? I mean, the violence that you spoke of is clearly a key factor, which is driving people towards the US. Yes. Absolutely. So good Kelly. I believe we'll have a good relationship with United States. He is not identified with. He is not going to be backing lisera in Venezuela. He has endorsed an international anti corruption commission, which the United States has wanted for a long time. So I think you'll have a good relationship in that sense. But look the reality is by graceful cellular is driven by crime and insecurity. It's driven by lack of opportunity. None of those things are going to be solved overnight, whatever President Trump thinks. And so that's going to be continued. Doing real problem. If he does the best he can on this focusing on prevention focusing on long-term improvements in the police and Justice system. It's gonna take years before migration rooted in criminal security drops Jeff fell vice president all for programs at the Washington office on Latin America, thanks for joining us live telling us a bit more about the man who will become the new president of El Salvador Naib bouquet.
