      *El Salvador - who watches the 'watchers'? Lara Pullin on electoral shenanigans

      Lara Pullin with the latest update on the situation in El Salvador
      where the governing ARENA coalition has scrapped the agreements on
      electoral reform with the Organisation of American States. With even
      the most conservative polls giving the FMLN opposition party a
      commanding 20 point lead, the right wing ARENA party is resorting to
      increasingly desperate tactics in a bid to steal next year's elections
      - even threatening to expel independent observers who will be arriving
      there to observe the elections, including a number of Australians.


      *Caracas on the Line - Fred Fuentes on rumbles in the Party

      Fred Fuentes in Caracas reports on important struggles being played
      out within Venezuela's governing PSUV (United Socialist Party of
      Venezuela). While President Chavez' power base is with the grass roots
      organisations, some of the entrenched bureaucrats and more
      conservative politicians are fighting off challenges from delegates
      representing these grass roots organisations, tooth and nail. PSUV is
      currently going through a kind of 'pre-selection' process, and the
      more conservative elements are using all kinds of dirty tricks to hang
      on to their influence within the party.

      *Land Rights Challenge - Jose Texeira on Timor Leste political situation

      Jose Texeira, a Fretilin Parliamentarian and the party's media
      spokesman was in Australia this week and granted LatinRadical an
      interview where he clarifies some of the issues at stake in the
      weakening of the AMP governing coalition. One of the older parties,
      the ASDT, and several smaller parties, are concerned at the lack of
      transparency of at least one of the appointed AMP Ministers with an
      apparently covert agreement with an Indonesian Biofuel company to turn
      a quarter of East Timor's arable land to sugar cane production for
      biofuels. It took over three months to force the AMP government to
      make the details of the deal available for public discussion. Jose
      says that this need not necessarily lead to an early election, this
      will depend very much on the government's response to questioning. The
      ASDT has already signed an agreement to run as a coalition party with
      Fretilin, should elections be called.
