Honduras: Businessmen Want Political Change

Continued economic deterioration during the government of Porfirio Lobo has led businessmen to prefer the leftist opposition candidate over the ruling party man.

An article in Elnuevoherald.com reports that Adolfo Facussé, president of the National Association of Manufacturers, said that the current government "... is an economic disaster, giving out money in political campaigns, increasing public administration and making unnecessary tenders which are not very transparent".

"... The economic situation for entrepreneurs is 'unbearable' because 'the government has created a very negative atmosphere which is against private enterprise.'"

Facussé said: "We are with Xiomara (Castro, wife of former ousted president Manuel Zelaya) if she chooses the path of the moderate left, as has been done in Nicaragua and El Salvador."
