I THINK I WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO QUESTIONED HIS OUSTER IN THE FORUM
NOW READ THIS PROVES I WAS CORRECT !!!!!!!

TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras Less than a decade ago, even talk of re-election was enough to get a Honduran president overthrown.


Now Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez appears likely to win a second term on Sunday as well as bolstering the strength of his conservative National Party across the board.

"Hernandez is not just trying to win presidential re-election, he's trying to expand his power from top to bottom, including in the legislature and at the mayoral level," said James Bosworth, the founder of Hxagon, a consulting firm that does predictive analysis in emerging markets.

Fears of just that sort of consolidation but by left-wing rivals led Hernandez's own party to back a military coup in 2009 against a president it accused of plotting to violate Honduras's seemingly iron-clad constitutional ban on re-election.

The country's highest court backed the 2009 ouster of Manuel Zelaya. But the current court packed with Hernandez' supporters ruled in 2015 that the constitution could not prevent him from running again outraging opposition leaders.

"This ruling was a betrayal of the country," said union leader Carlos H. Reyes. "It is humiliating to live in a country where a dictatorship that answers to the oligarchy is trying to install itself."

Some opposition leaders formed the leftist Opposition Alliance Against Dictatorship precisely to oppose the re-election bid. The Alliance is running Salvador Nasralla, while the traditional Liberal Party is running Luis Zelaya, a middle-of-the-road candidate. There are another six candidates from tiny opposition parties, but the president remains the clear front-runner.

His popularity is based largely on a drop in violence in a country whose homicide rate was once among the world's worst. The country's National Autonomous University says the homicide rate has dropped to 59 per 100,000 from a dizzying high of 91.6 in 2011.

Still, Hondurans among the hemisphere's poorest people, and even if killings have tapered off somewhat, street gang violence has frightened many people into trying to flee to the United States.

And corruption remains a major problem for Honduras, casting a shadow across Hernandez's administration.

A convicted drug trafficker testified in a New York courtroom this year that he met with Hernandez' brother Antonio to get the Central American country's government to pay its debts to a company that the trafficker's cartel used to launder money.

Devis Leonel Rivera Maradiaga, ex-leader of the cartel known the Cachiros, testified that Antonio Hernandez asked him for a bribe in exchange for government contracts. The brother has denied that allegation.

And in September, the son of a former president from Hernandez's party, Porfirio Lobo was sentenced in New York to 24 years in prison after revealing his role in a cocaine trafficking conspiracy. Fabio Lobo, 46, pleaded guilty in May 2016, admitting he worked with drug traffickers and Honduran police to ship cocaine into the United States.

Ho-hum. Once again the same crap.
Honduras is and will continue to be a shit-hole.
Guatemala may be incredibly corrupt but Honduras is in another league.

Hi Denny hope all is well. Anyway, the main point was Hillary got rid of Zalay unjustly because he only wanted to put it on ballet vote to change it so 2 terms would work for him. Now the same people who got rid of him, with the support of the USA for that reason are doing the same thing for which they deposed Zalay. If you go back to that time on the Chisma I was the only person who defended Zalay. the Media and US Government did such a good job that everyone on the Chisma bashed Zalay even though he was doing good for the poor that make up 80% of the Honduran people

Honduras opposition candidate alleges fraud in presidential vote

Opposition candidate Salvador Nasralla is photographed during his interview with AFP in Tegucigalpa on November 28, 2017
Honduran opposition candidate Salvador Nasralla on Tuesday accused incumbent President Juan Orlando Hernandez of trying to steal the Central American country's bitterly disputed election by faking poll results.

Leftist TV host-turned-politician Nasralla said Hernandez was colluding with the army and the electoral authorities to forge new results sheets and give himself the edge in Sunday's presidential election.

"He's fabricating (the results)," Nasralla told AFP in an interview.

"He controls the media. He's going to have the results sheets he wants validated and change the will of the people."

The election in this poor, gang-plagued country has turned into a drawn-out showdown between Nasralla, 64, and Hernandez, 49, who is going for four more years in office despite a constitutional limit of just one term.

Both candidates have declared victory, but the results are far from clear.

In the early hours of Monday, Nasralla led by five percentage points with 57 percent of ballots counted.

Then the Supreme Electoral Tribunal interrupted its live broadcast of the results and announced the rest of the ballots would be brought to the capital, Tegucigalpa, to be counted.

On Tuesday, the election authority posted new results on its website: 44.4 percent for Nasralla to 40.5 percent for Hernandez -- about one percentage point narrower than the opposition candidate's previous lead -- with just over 61 percent of the ballots counted.

Nasralla accused the conservative president of plotting to rig the vote, saying his "survival instinct" was hijacking democracy.

"He knows if he's not the president any more he'll be extradited" to face corruption charges, he told AFP.

"He's trying to sow chaos so he can declare a state of emergency and take control with the help of his people and the army."

- President urges patience -

Hernandez for his part asked Hondurans to be patient.

Officials have said the final vote tally may not be ready until Thursday.

In his first public appearance since declaring himself winner Sunday night, Hernandez said his supporters are right to take to the streets in celebration, as they have done.

Speaking at a press conference, he again insisted he has won the presidency and his party the largest number of seats in congress.

"The result is more than clear," he said at the presidential residence.

But Hernandez also said people must wait until all the ballots are counted.

"It is important for everyone to be patient, for everyone to be considerate with Honduras," he said.

Hernandez's conservative National Party -- which controls the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government -- contends that a 2015 Supreme Court ruling allows his re-election.

Nasralla and his coalition, the Opposition Alliance Against the Dictatorship, have denounced the incumbent's bid, saying the court does not have the power to overrule the 1982 constitution.

Situated in the heart of Central America's "Northern Triangle," where gangs and poverty are rife, Honduras has one of the highest murder rates in the world -- though it has fallen under Hernandez.

What credit he claims from that progress, however, is counterbalanced by tensions over his re-election bid.

It is a loaded issue in Honduras, where former president Manuel Zelaya was toppled in a coup in 2009 -- notably because he was accused of plotting to change the constitution to stand for a second term.

Nasralla has close ties to Zelaya, who remains a popular figure.

You probably don't remember but Mel was very cozy with Cuba, Venezuela, Equador, and Bolivia. Fuel more than anything and from a real leftist govt.
Your democrats are not leftists, in fact far from it. I have to laugh every time I see someone calling them 'the left'.
This could not be allowed by the powers in Washington and thus he was flown to
Costa Rica in the middle of the night in his pijamas.
Adios, Mel. He is actually a member of our family and I liked him a lot.
He forgot to never mess with the 'commies'.
