Government refuses entry of election observers

La Prensa Gráfica reports that the migration officials refused entry to 67 election observers for the CIS at the airport Saturday, saying that 1) the CIS was not a legally registered entity in El Salvador and 2) that these people were not duly registered before the TSE. A separate column noted that the CIS has been waiting on their legal registration for five years from the interior ministry (gobernación). The article does not note whether the CIS refutes the charge that they are not registered as observers, but the article in El Diario de Hoy does say that CIS issued a communique asserting that they had fulfilled all of the requirements of the TSE--which was not available for comment.
