Mauricio Funes: Central America's Lula? (Esp./Norw.)

Does it make sense to compare the president of El Salvador, Mauricio Funes, withLula? Could Funes be a mediator between different political fractions in such a divided country as El Salvador? And could he be a stabilizing factor in turbulent Central America, similar to what Lula has been in South America? Read the article by Nelson Salinas and Benedicte Bull here in Spanish or here in Norwegian.
