A survey from Deutsche Welle shows a high level of approval for the security measures implemented by Nayib Bukele

More than 80% of the users of the social network Twitter who have participated in a survey published by the German news outlet Deutsche Welle (DW) approve of the security measures implemented by the President of the Republic, Nayib Bukele, in the fight against crime and gangs in El Salvador.

“And you? What do you think about the #NayibBukele method to end the violence in #ElSavador?”, published the DW on its Twitter account, opening a survey in which, until the publication of this note, showed that 83% of the users approved the measures implemented by Bukele in El Salvador.

Among the measures that the Bukele government has implemented in recent months is the start of phase 5 of the Territorial Control Plan, called “Extraction”, with a security fence in the municipality of Soyapango, which has allowed the capture of 185 mareros.

Another of the measures supported by the population is the emergency regime, approved on March 27 in response to the latest increase in homicides registered in El Salvador.

After the approval of the measure, which is still in force more than seven months after being ratified by the Legislative Assembly, the authorities of the Ministry of Security have confirmed that there are more than 59,000 members or collaborators of gang groups throughout the Salvadoran territory. .

Similarly, the Territorial Control Plan, with which the security forces in El Salvador have maintained frontal combat against gangs and criminal groups for more than three years under the Bukele administration, has been implemented.

Between the application of the Territorial Control Plan and the validity of the emergency regime, El Salvador has registered more than 200 days with zero homicides so far in Bukele’s term. In addition, the country has achieved a historic reduction in violence, having three of the safest months in the entire history of the country in 2022.
