Artist's Description

I was present and invited as a travel consultant at the Inauguration of finished phase #2 of the Hotel Decameron Salinitas in the Republica De El Salvador on the 2/FEB./2007

While the Presidente of El Salvador was visiting the hotel with a suite of 150 other peoples it was impressive but he stopped to speak with ME during 2 minutes, while a 20 or so horde of TV cameras, news paper journalist where just beside me waiting in awe with their jaws down in the heat (47 Celsius in the shade) to speak, film, and interview him , but it did not seem to bother him, he entertained me with a big hand shake and huge smile , asking me if I liked my stay at the hotel, was I well lodged, well entertained, well serviced by the staff of the hotel, well fed, if I slept well, where the beds comfy and finally asked me " will you come back? "
It seemed to me he has a really jolly and happy personality, he did leave a good first impression on me…

Elías Antonio (Tony) Saca González (born in Usulután, 9 March 1965) is a Salvadoran politician and the current President of El Salvador. He was elected President in 2004. He was elected to serve a 5-year term that ends in 2009.

Saca is descended from Palestinian immigrants who arrived in El Salvador in the early 20th century from the West Bank town of Bethlehem. Prior to becoming President he was a broadcast journalist, specializing in sports radio and a prominent businessman. He attended to the University of Central America.

On 21 March 2004 he was elected President of El Salvador and, on 1 June 2004 succeeded President Francisco Flores. Both Saca and Flores are members of the conservative Nationalist Republican Alliance party, generally known by its Spanish-language acronym ARENA.

During the election campaign, some commentators criticized Saca’s lack of political experience. In the election, Saca defeated leftist Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front (FMLN) candidate, Schafik Handal, also of Palestinian descent. The election results were:

  • Antonio Saca (ARENA) 57.7%
  • Schafik Handal (FMLN) 35.6%
  • Héctor Silva (CDU-PDC) 3.9%
  • Other 2.8%
