Nayib Bukele’s strange path to the presidency

Bukele began his political career in 2012 as the FMLN-backed mayor of the small town of Nuevo Cuscatlán.

In 2015, he won the mayoral elections of San Salvador, defeating a conservative candidate whose party, the Nationalist Republican Alliance (ARENA), had ruled for two terms.

After Bukele became mayor, the political relationship between him and his party began to deteriorate.

Some analysts say the FMLN considered Bukele too harsh a critic of the then-government of Salvador Sánchez Cerén.

In September 2017, municipal comptroller Xóchitl Marchelli accused Bukele of “throwing an apple” and calling her a “witch” during a meeting of the San Salvador City Council, which Bukele denied.

The next month, the FMLN expelled Bukele, citing Marchelli’s allegations and accusing Bukele of promoting divisions within the party.

Bukele took to Facebook Live to announce that he would start a new political party called “New Ideas,” but it turned out to be a short-lived venture.

Struggling to accredit the nascent party with the Supreme Electoral Tribunal while presidential elections loomed, Bukele abandoned New Ideas and joined an existing party called Democratic Change.

Then in July 2018, Democratic Change was shut down along with three other parties for failing to acquire a minimum number of votes in the 2015 election.

Nayib Bukele was forced to find a yet another political party to back his candidacy.

Just six months before the elections, Bukele finally found GANA, a party that could last all the way to the presidency. And indeed it did.

An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated the name of political science professor Mike Allison. This has been corrected.
