Honduras Gears Up for Primary Elections

TEGUCIGALPA – Honduras is preparing for next weekend’s primary elections, with the armed forces starting to distribute voting materials on Monday, the national elections commission said.

The first trucks loaded with election materials have headed off to the Caribbean provinces of Colon and Atlantida, the western provinces of Ocotepeque and Copan, and the northern region of Yoro, the commission’s president, Erick Rodriguez, told reporters.

“The packages are being transported by the armed forces to the different destinations scheduled on the first tour. Little by little, we have been fulfilling the requirements of the process. Today, we targeted the most distant provinces,” Rodriguez said.

Some 5.8 million people are eligible to vote in the primaries, casting ballots at more than 5,000 polling stations.

Of the 18 provinces in Honduras, the last one to receive voting materials will be the central province of Francisco Morazan, where the capital, Tegucigalpa, is located.

Voters will select candidates for roughly 2,990 posts, including president, three vice presidents, 298 mayors and 128 members of Congress.

Candidates from the governing National Party, the main opposition Liberal Party and the Freedom and New Foundation party, whose leader is former President Mel Zelaya, are on the ballot.
