El Salvador President schools BBC reporter 

Nayib Bukele, now the twice elected president of El Salvador, shared this video on 21st February, showing his reply to a question asked by a BBC reporter. Bukele’s New Ideas party won a “supermajority” on Monday, romping home in 54 of the 60 congressional seats. Salvadorian laws allow the leader accorded with a supermajority to have an apparent free reign in governance. Upon his election in 2019, Nayib Bukele, who is of Palestinian heritage, emerged as the youngest president in Latin America. Known for his love of grand events, he has managed to draw global celebrities, including organising the Miss Universe pageant and bringing football legend Lionel Messi for a friendly game. Bukele gained international attention in 2022 for his stringent crackdown on the gangs that have plagued El Salvador for years.
