Honduras opposition parties ask for disputed election to be annulled

Honduras opposition parties ask for disputed election to be annulled”

Nearly two weeks after the presidential elections in Honduras, there is still no sign of a solution to the crisis unleashed in the country due to allegations of fraud, while political tension increases as clashes between the political forces grow.

Since the beginning of the vote counting Nasralla ws leading with nearly 5 points, ahead of Hernandez, but when the TSE announced the final results, it gave the incumbent candidate a narrow victory of 42,98 percent against 41,38.

"We're asking for the result to be declared null at the presidential level, due to the scandalous fraud we have discovered", Nasralla said.

Meanwhile, the Liberal Party secretary, Octavio Pineda, also delivered a formal request to the TSE to annul the results.

Salvador Nasralla, the leader of the Alliance of Opposition Against the Dictatorship, called on the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE) to initiate a total recount of all votes and documents.

"There have been violations since the president of the republic was allowed to participate in the electoral process when the constitution prohibited it", Pineda said.

The election has been plagued with problems since voting stations closed.

Honduras' election tribunal will re-count 4,753 ballot boxes that have cast a shadow on the results of the country's presidential election, the tribunal chief said on Thursday, bowing to a demand by the Organization of American States (OAS).

Marlon Ochoa, Nasralla's campaign manager, reiterated that the coalition wants a full recount of the complete 18,000-odd ballot boxes. Nasralla on Wednesday evening called for an global arbiter to oversee a recount of the entire 18,000-odd ballot boxes, saying he no longer recognized the Honduran tribunal because of its role in the process.

During ballot counting, Honduras suspended some constitutional rights and imposed a 10-day curfew, from 6 p.m.to 6 a.m., in an effort to give security forces whatever powers they needed to control protests about the disputed election.
