Post-election Protests and Tension Continue in Honduras

The process of review of the contestations filed against the general elections held on November 26 in Honduras continues today, while the opposition prepares a national mobilization throughout the country in rejection of an alleged fraud.

Nearly three weeks after the completion of these elections, the Supreme Electoral Court (TSE) still has not officially proclaimed the president-elect, which keeps Hondurans in permanent tension.

The TSE is accused of forging an electoral coup.

According to the information provided, the process has a total of 125 contestations, including 78 at the municipal level, 43 at the provincial level and four at the presidential level.

The latter was presented by the Liberal Party, two citizens independently and the Alliance of Opposition against the Dictatorship, whose allegations of fraud keep the country under a severe political and institutional crisis.

Initially, the candidate of that political force, Salvador Nasralla, came to have an advantage of five points over the president and candidate for reelection Juan Orlando Hernandez, when he had completed about 60 percent of the vote.

However, after an inexplicable failure in the computer system of the TSE, that distance – considered irreversible by experts – was shortened until the situation was reversed in a tricky manner, according to evidence presented by the opposition.
