El Salvador's national elections were March 1, but we still don't know who won the final seat in the National Assembly.
Currently the parties have won the following seats in the 84 seat National Assembly:
FMLN -- 31 deputies
GANA -- 11 deputies
ARENA -- 34 deputies
PCN -- 6 deputies
PDC -- 1 deputy
The FMLN and GANA often vote together, and have 42, or half the deputies, but need 43 for a simple majority.
ARENA, PCN and PDC often vote together, and they have now 41 deputies.
The remaining seat is being disputed between ARENA, and CD (Democratic Change). CD typically allies itself with the FMLN. So the outcome of this seat will determine whether the left gains a majority in the National Assembly, or if the country has a legislature split evenly in half.
The votes which will determine the outcome are from San Salvador department. For the past week, the parties have been struggling over the scrutiny of tally sheets and ballots to determine the remaining deputy and the balance of power in the legislature.
