During his inauguration, President Bukele admitted that El Salvador had overcome its fear of becoming a free country. He recalled that in his previous tenure, criminals threatened the national security of El Salvador. 

While he ascended as the 45th president, Bukele declared open war with criminals and gang groups. He led the law enforcers to impose harsh crackdowns in the Central American country.

Even though the approach used to reduce crime in El Salvador was considered undemocratic, the President had led the country to become a global leader. He recognized the support from international leaders and Salvadoran citizens in mitigating crime.

The remarkable achievement in making El Salvador a peaceful country enabled Bukele’s career to attract success. In the February election, Bukele was declared President, winning 58 seats out of 60. 

The crypto community and global leaders praised his victory. On X, a crypto enthusiast, Cory Bate, described Bukele’s leadership as proof of work. The X user was pleased to state that Bukele will lead for another five years.

With the recent reforms to the El Salvador constitution, the President has gained more power in his second term. A few months ago, El Salvador policymakers approved a bill allowing the President to initiate some constitutional reforms.

With the changes in legislation, the Salvadorian citizens are confident that Bukele will use the second term to attain his manifesto of steering the country in a direction that attracts success. 

Reflecting on the biting inflation and increased poverty rate, Bukele vowed to implement effective strategies to stabilize El Salvador’s financial position. During his previous tenure, the Bukele administration managed to settle debts. 

Despite the efforts, El Salvador’s public debt has reached $30 billion. The Salvadoran government has taken corrective measures to reduce the debt. President Bukele has invested a considerable amount of funds in purchasing Bitcoin.
