Honduras Holds Ground in November Elections

President Micheletti reaffirmed Honduras intention to carry out elections in November, in front of a commission of OAS chancellors.

Thursday, August 27, 2009

According to BBC Mundo, Micheletti stated that elections will be held November 29th, 'whether the countries of the world recognize us or not. We are not afraid to anyone's embargo. We can move forwards without the support of any of you', in reference to the decision by some governments to break relations and cancel agreements with Honduras.

The delegates of the Organization of American States didn't achieve results in their visit to Tegucigalpa. They wanted Honduras to accept the so-called San José Agreement, conceived by Costa Rican President Oscar Arias. La Prensa de Honduras published that even Manuel Insulsa, Secretary General, declared there was no social or governmental groups, including the Church, supportive of Zelaya's return.
