Presidential elections occured in El Salvador in November 2019. In the election, former President Adán Tamayo Navarro was declared to have been the winner. He was sworn in on 1 January 2020. On 14 January, a series of protests errupted in Ciudad Los'Ángeles over Tamayo Navarro and his predecessor, Armando Calderón Sol, allowing the National Intelligence Directorate (DINA) to reenter the country following the declaration of martial law in August 2019. Tamayo Navarro was assassinated only 16 days into his term on 16 January. He was replaced by his Vice President, Alexander Giammattei Falla. The change in leadership appeased most moderate protestors who only sought a change in government since Tamayo Navarro was a part of a political dynasty that had ruled El Salvador since 1980. However, there were radical protestors who continued to oppose the new government of Giammattei Falla and continued to protest, even demanding full independence from Creeperopolis. Giammattei Falla declared a state of emergency on 19 January. In his declaration, he formally requested the Creeperian Armed Forces to enter El Salvador and put down the radical protestors. The action was approved of by the moderate protestors who were satisfied with the regime change. The Creeperian government gave the protestors until midnight on 21 January to cease protesting and the violence mostly ended by 31 January, but sporadic demonstrations continued following 31 January.
On 9 April 2020, Giammattei Falla called for a snap election for 12 April to appease the protestors. The protestors demanded a foreign nation should monitor the elections for fairness. Six candidates were declared, four of whom were from the Creeperian Initiative and one of them was Giammattei Falla. The election was postponed to 19 April since no international observer had been declared. It was again postponed on 19 April for the same reason. The Creeperian government official requested the government of Lyoa to be the international monitor for the election to which Lyoa agreed. The election occured as planned on 26 April but the results were not released until 7 May when Giammattei Falla was declared the winner. The results were seen as rigged and the protests continued.
Ciudad Los'Ángeles Agreement
On 7 October, the government of El Salvador and the radical protestors came to a final agreement after negotiations ended. The terms of the agreement, the Ciudad Los'Ángeles Agreement, were as follow:
- A new constitution for El Salvador
- The establishment of a legislature, the Legislative Assembly
- The establishment of 2 opposition political parties, the Salvadoran Pro-Fatherland Front and the Salvadoran Popular Movement
- The implementation of biannual legislative elections
- The implementation of presidential elections every 3 years
The factions also agreed that three political parties would exist: the Creeperian Initiative, the Salvadoran Pro-Fatherland Front, and the Salvadoran Popular Movement. The three agreed that only the Creeperian Initiative could run candidates in the presidential elections and that only the Salvadoran Pro-Fatherland Front and the Salvadoran Popular Movement could run candidates in the legislative election.
The government and protestors agreed to hold the elections on 1 November 2020 in the form as a general election. 1 November was to be set as the date for all future elections as it had been in the past. The results of the previous election in April 2020 were agreed to be cancelled. Giammattei Falla agreed to continue serving as President until 1 January 2021 when the new President would take over. He also agreed to not run for reelection.
The new constitution would prohibit people from holding the office of President for two consecutive terms, just like the then current constitution did. The constitution would also set the seat count of the Legislative Assembly at 111, each representing one legislative district in El Salvador.
The Creeperian Initiative announced its candidates shortly after the signing of the agreements. The Salvadoran Pro-Fatherland Front and the Salvadoran Popular Movement began campaigning in each of the 111 districts to earn seats for the first session of the new legislature.

Notable expressions, phrases, and statements
- El Salvador First – Stated by Pareja Palau in the first debate, the phrase implies that he will put the interests of El Salvador before any other international interests.
- Hating Malgers is not racist. – Said by Morales Cabrera during the first debate, the phrase states that hating Malgans is not inherently racist. The term "Malger," a Malgaphobic racial slur, was used instead of the proper demonym, "Malgan."
- Malgerbeshia – Said by both Pareja Palau and Morales Cabrera during the first debate, the term is a mix of the racial slur "Malger" and the international organization known as Aurebeshia. The term implies Malgax controls the organization.
- Malger World Order or Malger–Squg World Order – A conspiracy theory pushed for by Pareja Palau and Morales Cabrera during the first debate that states that Malgax, and in some instances, Sequoyah, control the entire world from behind the scenes. Typically, it is refered to as the "Malgan(-Sequoyan) World Order," but the candidates used the racial slurs "Malger" and "Squg" in place of Malgan and Sequoyan.
- You can think that. – A phrase allegedly said by Pareja Palau in the first debate, the phrase was allegedly said in response to the debate moderator telling him "your chances at being elected are at the will of the voters."[better source needed] Pareja Palau denied making the remark and stated that it was "Malgan propaganda." Most international sources, most notably the Quebecshirite Broadcasting Corporation, confirmed that he did in fact make the statement.
Presidential debates were scheduled for 10 October, 17 October, and 24 October. Each candidate was supposed to attend two of the three debates, however, Morales Cabrera and Pareja Palau only attended one, while Castillo Reyes attended zero.

The moderator, Carlos Franco Rodríguez of the Gaceta Creeperiano, presented four general and introduction questions to each candidate. The first was what each candidate believed was the most important issue the country sould address. Morales Cabrera said that the single most important issue was infastructural development and that most of his agenda was about infastructure, economy, domestic development, and innovation. He wanted to link all major cities with railroads and institute a "National Welfare Initiative." Pareja Palau stated that the most important issue was dealing with the National Intelligence Directorate presence in El Salvador. He stated that since January, people had been protesting its return since the 1956 agreement to leave, yet the DINA returned in August 2019. He stated that the first thing he would do in office would be to negotiate with the Creeperian government to have the DINA leave El Salvador or to establish Salvadoran-run DINA in the country. The second question was what the candidates would do in their first 100 days in office. Morales Cabrera stated that his first 100 days would be about the construction of a high speed railroad from Ciudad Los'Ángeles to El Congo as well as sending funds to the Rafael Campo Pomar International Airport. He also stated he would change the flag, anthem, and motto to Salvadoran Spanish from Creeperian Spanish. Pareja Palau repeated that the first thing he would do is begin negotiations with the Creeperian government about the DINA. He also added that he would invest 1 billion colóns into the tourism market and invest into the infrastructure of cities along the Granada River, stating that the roads would be "completely redone." He also stated he wanted to redevelop the airports of Ciudad Los'Ángeles, El Congo, and El Mozote for larger planes and more passengers. The third question presented was "Why should you be chosen over your opponent." Morales Cabrera said that he should be chosen over his opponent as Pareja Palau "is too quick to make his decisions and too intense." Morales Cabrera stated that his platform involved "making El Salvador for Salvadorans while [Pareja Palau's] keeps us a little too close for comfort with Creeperopolis." He stated that the current relationship with Creeperopolis was fine but he did not want to be closer. Pareja Palau claimed that Morales Cabrera was actually the one wanting to bring El Salvador closer to Creeperopolis since he was the incumbent Mayor of Santa Ana. He stated, "I want El Salvador for Salvadorans. I will get the DINA out of the country or get them to give us control of their division here." He continued by sating, "[a]ll of the money I invest during my presidency will be for El Salvador, not for Creeperopolis. [The money] will go to CODECO, not directly Creeperopolis, for [all] members of the alliance. I am the one that cares about the Salvadorans." The fourth and final general question was about what the candidates thought of the Ciudad Los'Ángeles Agreement. Morales Cabrera said that he "absolutely" supported the agreement for a peaceful settlement to the issue as the best route possible. He stated that it allowed for elections and for more say to people on how they are governed. He stated that "[it s]atisfies both sides of the argument and [it is a] generally good agreement." Pareja Palau stated "I strongly agree with the agreement. It is the best path for El Salvador to be a greater demoracy. It has been a very flawed democracy since 1970 and this is the best step for further democratization." He expressed further support for the legislative elections as well and that it provided a greater say to people.
Franco Rodríguez then presented the candidates four domestic policy questions. The first question was about which political party running in the legislative elections the candidates support. Morales Cabrera stated his support for the Salvadoran Popular Movement in the legislative election stating that "the platform is the best for El Salvador. It brings something new and something fresh." He stated that Paúl Sáenz Guerrero would be "fantastic for the country." Pareja Palau endorsed Roberto Sánchez Figueroa and the Salvadoran Pro-Fatherland Front for the legislative election. He expressed that "[t]hey stick to our values that we have because we are all Catholics in the country. They hold that religion true and will put our religion and traditions and beliefs first before anything else. They have endorsed me and I will endorse them to lead our legislative part of our government." The second question was about the presence of the National Intelligence Direcorate (DINA) in El Salvador. Morales Cabrera did not support the DINA presence. He stated that there was an agreement in 1956 that they would leave, but he thought that there should be a Salvadoran division to better serve the Salvadoran government. He thought that the country having its own intelligence deptartment would be useful stating "[w]e should utilize the DINA presence already established [and] turn it into a Salvadoran agency." Pareja Palau agreed with Morales Cabrera and said that the DINA should be made a into Salvadoran agency in El Salvador. He said it can be used to crack down on crime in El Salvador. He stated, "[t]he DINA agreed to not come back, yet they have, but since they are here, we should make the best of it to make it our own and enforce our laws." Franco Rodríguez's third question was wether the Salvadoran National Police should be militarized, reformed, or remain as it currently was. Morales Cabrera said that they should "somewhat demilitarize" the national police and that it went along with plan for a Salvadoran DINA. Martial law established by Creeperopolis, but "most people not a fan of martial law and militarization of police." He wanted to replace that militarized role with a Salvadoran DINA. Pareja Palau said that they should give the police "more funds and better weapons. We need to further militarize them to help them crack down on crime." He wanted martial law lidfted and for the Creeperian Army to leave. He wanted a self sufficient militarized police to "appropriately handle with the terrorists of Mara Salvatrucha." The final question was what the candidates thought of the death penalty in El Salvador. Morales Cabrera supported the death penalty but thought that there should be limitations on the death penalty. He stated that some crimes could be downsized to life in prison, specifically stating that homosexuality should be removed from capital punishment to therapy or life imprisonment. He stated that "[n]o one is born gay. It is learned later in life. We can help cure them through therapy or life imprisonment." Pareja Palau also supported the death penalty but he did not want to remove any crimes as qualifiers. He stated he wanted to make the death penalty automatic and extrajudicial in some cases relating to gang activity.
Franco Rodríguez presented the candidates nine foreign policy questions. The first question presented was if the candidates supported foreign investment into El Salvador. Morales Cabrera stated he "absolutely" supported foreign and Creeperian investors in his agenda to allow for resource investment and job creation, specifically the National Mining and Smelting Corporation (CORNAMIF). He wanted to attract investors from all across the world and specifically Greater Sacramento to learn from their strong economy. He also said it could give new cultural influences to El Salvador. Pareja Palau supported foreign and Creeperian investors, specifically the Creeperian National Coffee and Sugar Corporation (CORNACA) to use land for growing coffee and sugar in El Salvador so El Salvador would not have to buy goods from Creeperopolis. He wanted those products in El Salvador to lower prices. Wants to bring Quebecshirite investors due to trade relationship "look what Quebecshire did to them. They're the second largest economy. We want them to do that to us." The second question was what the candidates thought of the Cooperation and Development Coalition (CODECO). Morales Cabrera said he was absolutely supportive of Lyoa and CODECO "brought nothing but prosperity." He wanted to maintain position in alliance as "overall benefit for El Salvador." He talked about Lyoa's natural resources wealth and floated the idea of introducing Salvadoran companies to Lyoa. Pareja Palau also supported El Salvador's involvement in CODECO, stating that membership helps the economy and makes people in El Salvador wealthier overall. He wanted CORNACA in the country to sell products to CODECO and Lyoa to increase the trading power of Salvadoran products. He brought up the general alignment of CODECO to the Terraconserva Economic Union (TEU).
The third question began the heavily racist portion of the debate. The question was regarding El Salvador's relationship with Quebecshire. Morales Cabrera "absolutely supports El Salvador's relationship with Quebecshire." He said it was similar to the relations with CODECO, as they were "building [a] relationship with international community is helpful to our economy and for growth." He again called for international investments and mentioned it would bring El Salvador closer to the TEU. He claimed the Quebecshire is taking stand against "Malger World Order" and will help "prevent us from being taken over by the Malgers." Pareja Palau agreed with Morales Cabrera stating that Quebecshirite investment would be essential and they would be able to help the economy. He reiterated the desire to "stop the Malgers from influencing the world." He stated that "Quebecshire is essential to keeping the Malgers outside of El Salvador." The fourth question regarded the alleged Malgan ethnic cleansing which was allegedly occuring in Terranihil. Morales Cabrera stated that allegations of the Malgan ethnic cleansing is "Malger propaganda," claiming that it was an allegation to make the TEU appear racist. He stated bluntly that "hating Malgers is not racist" and claimed that "they're just trying to discredit the good international standing of Terranihil to weaken TEU and eventually destroy El Salvador." Pareja Palau stated that "this ethnic cleansing is complete Malger propaganda. Their world order is trying to destroy the TEU by slandering Terranihil and accusing Quebecshire of supporting a genocide." He stated that "Ernest Pyle's experiment in Terranihil was illegal and he is a terrorist." He expressed hope that Pyle would be turned over to the Terranihian authorities to face trial for his "crimes." He also bluntly stated "[b]ut I really wish [the Malgan ethnic cleansing] was real. It would be the best way to stop the Malgers from taking over the world. Terranihil, please initiate that into your country." The fifth question regarded El Salvador's relations with the TEU. Morales Cabrera wished to improve relations with "the whole TEU in general. It is a great way to prevent the Malgers from utilizing their Squg puppets to destroy El Salvador. Any country wishing to oppose Malgers and Squgs is a country we should do business with." Pareja Palau agreed with Morales Cabrera and said that El Salvador should be focused on broader TEU. He stated, "[l]ike my opponent said, we need to get closer with them to stop the Squgs in Sequoyah. One of their presidential candidates literally wants to militairze the border, [and] that's an act of aggression." He claimed that Sequoyan "aggression" against Creeperopolis was a part of the "Malger World Order's" plan and that TCN Resolution 002 was to destroy Creeperopolis and El Salvador. He claimed that "Quebecshire and what became the TEU came to Creeperopolis's defense to stop the Malgers and Squgs from destroying our country." He ran out of his alloted time and Franco Rodríguez informed him that his time was up, but Pareja Palau told him to "shut up, you're like a Malger" and continued talking for ten more seconds.
The sixth question was about Paleocacherian and Malgan investment and involvement in Sequoyah. Morales Cabrera stated that the "Malger–Squg World Order is something that is attempting to establish itself." He said that Paleocacherian and Malgan behavior in Sequoyah was a threat to security and existence of the nation. He stated, "[i]t's obvious that [Malgax] intends to use Sequoyah as a puppet to send [Sequoyans] northward to destroy Creeperopolis and El Salvador" and that recent actions threatened the power balance in the Southern Continent. He said that Creeperopolis should annex "Squg state." Pareja Palau said, "[y]es, these revelations are absolutely a threat to Salvadoran existence." He claimed that "Paleocacher is bending over and bootlicking for the Malgers. The Malgers are controlling Aurebeshia." He claimed that Malgax still supported Sequoyah covertly. He stated that the "Malgers supported Morova, the international pariah." He credited Creeperopolis for the Morovan "obliteration" in April 2020. He stated that the "Malgers need to be stopped. Squgs need to be stopped. Paleocacher needs to stop bending over for Malgax and Aurebeshia. They need to leave Aurebeshia. The Malgers need to be punished for supporting Sequoyah." He argued with the moderator when told his time had elapsed several times. The seventh question regarded allegations that the TEU was an imperialist organization. Morales Cabrera stated that the TEU was not an imperialist organization and that the allegation was a "Malger propaganda piece" and that "Malgax is imperialist." He stated that "[a]ll the TEU has done is benefit each [nation] and unify to support each [nation]." He stated that the TEU is anti-imperialist and "preventing Malgers from taking over the plant." Pareja Palau said that the "TEU is essential for El Salvador's existence. It is not at all imperialistic." He claimed that it is an economic union to aid member states and protect them. He continued, "[t]he TEU are not the imperialists, the Aurebeshia Malgers are the imperialists." He listed the Aurebeshian member states and said that they're all imperialists. He claimed that the Aurebesh constitution requires homosexuality to join. The eighth question regarded allegations that Aurebeshia was an imperialist organization. Morales Cabrera said that Aurebeshia "is absolutely imperialist" and "under control of the Malgers" and claimed that they "force you to be gay to join [Aurebeshia]" and that the Malgers want to "take over the world." He said that Aurebeshia should be condemned as imperialist and claimed that Aurebeshia is controlled by "Malger World Empire." Pareja Palau stated that "Aurebeshia is most definitely imperialist." He brought up the homosexuality clause in article one claim again and he claimed that TCN Resolutions 002, 004, and 006 were meant to "destroy our country." He claimed that "[Aurebeshia] just felll apart with TCN Resolution 009" stating that "[t]hey can't even go through with their plans. They're too gay to do so." He said that Malgax must be stopped and that Malgax "is using the Squgs and Lincoln to destroy our country. He called for the dismantling and opposing Aurebeshia. The last question allowed the candidates to address any issue not yet addressed that they wanted to bring attention to. Morales Cabrera mentioned "moving to reestablish El Salvador having its own sort of government" and said that the Lyoan government should be directly supported by a Salvadoran DINA against insurgents that were "probably backed by the Malger government." Pareja Palau addressed the alleged "Jewish Holocaust" conspiracy theory in Greater Sacramento. The stated that the rest of world must know the truth of the "Jewish Holocaust." He stated that "[w]e will destroy the Malgers, stop Aurebeshia, and spread the truth [of the "Jewish Holocaust"] across the entire world." He claimed that the Malgans were hiding the truth.
One audience question was presented by the moderator. It was regarding Salvadoran relations with Eminople and if they should begin diplomacy. Morales Cabrera stated "absolutely not" on improving relations with Eminople "until they leave Malgerbeshia." Pareja Palau, on the other hand, wanted to engage in diplomacy "now" to "inform them that the Malgers are controlling their government." He thought that he can help them leave the "Aurebesh-Malger-Squg superstate." Allegeations are made that a question was denied regarding Pareja Palau allegedly saying "[y]ou can think that" when Franco Rodríguez told him "your chances at being elected are at the will of the voters."[better source needed] Pareja Palau denied making the remark, stating that it was "Malgan propaganda."
The moderator allowed the two to make their closing statements. Pareja Palau stated that El Salvador "must be put first." He wanted to improve the economy and bring foreign and Creeperian investment for growth and cheaper goods. He wanted to "support CODECO and oppose Malgers and stop Malgerbeshia." He wanted to "support our economy and our people first before anyone else." Morales Cabrera stated "we should focus a lot of internal development." He mentioned his plan for a high spead rail line, airport renovations, and international investments. He mentioned his proposed National Welfare Initiatve to physically benefit the country and to benefit its people to "prevent a Malger takeover of our country." He said that if elected, "there will be no destruction of El Salvador. We will continue to grow and prosper without any Malger interference."
International reactions to the first debate
During the debate, the world "Malger," a Malgaphobic racial slur, was said a total of 69 times while "Squg," an anti-Sequoyan racial slur, was said around 40 times. The Liberal Union of Gagium denounced the "overt racism" of the debate and stated that it would continue to fight racism "aborad and at home." Terranilian National News stated that the audiences that watched the debate "approve[d] of both candidates, especially regarding Malgax and Aurebeshia." Domitien Ntaryamira, a Lyoan politician, stated that he approved the candidates' "strong stance against homosexuality."
The Quebecshirite Broadcasting Corporation (SRQ) stated that it was a "passionate debate" full of "fiscal intelligence and social falsehoods, with a firey ultranationalism." It stated that Quebecshirites thought that both candidates were socially delusional but that Pareja Palau was "economically best for both Quebecshire and El Salvador." According to the SRQ in an analysis posted the day after the debate, only 12% of its viewers or readers believed the candidates demonstrated "a state of stability and informedness" on social issues.
The second debate was scheduled to take place in Ciudad Los'Ángeles on 17 October and it was supposed to be hosted by El Salvadoreño and broadcasted on Channel Twelve, but both invitees, Morales Cabrera and Castillo Reyes, did not show up to the debate and the debate was canceled by the Salvadoran government. Both candidates failing to attend the debate caused both of their polling numbers to fall substantially with a significant increase in respondents stating they prefer Praeja Palau or are "Undecided" instead of either Morales Cabrera or Castillo Reyes.
The day following the debate's cancelation, both El Salvadoreño and Channel Twelve filed a complaint with the Creeperian Initiative over the loss of money in organizating the debate. Both lost an estimated ₡34 million colóns in organizating the debates. The Initiative paid both media outlets ₡34 million colóns in compensation. To compensate itself, the Initiative fined both candidates ₡34 million colóns and subsequently uninvited Castillo Reyes from the third debate against Pareja Palau.
The first debate was supposed to take place in Ciudad Los'Ángeles on 24 October. It was supposed to be hosted by Noticias de la'Iniciativa and was planned to be broadcasted on Channel Ten. Pareja Palau and Castillo Reyes were invited to take part in the debate, but Castillo Reyes' invitation was revoked after he failed to attend the second debate.
