Evidence of Fraud in Honduras Elections Presented to OAS in Washington

WASHINGTON – The candidate for the Opposition Alliance against the Dictatorship, Salvador Nasralla, handed over on Monday to the Organization of American States (OAS) evidence of the alleged fraud committed in the recent Honduran elections.

“We have documents that show the results were altered,” Nasralla said after meeting with OAS Secretary General Luis Almagro, who this Sunday called for new elections in Honduras due to the “impossibility of determining a winner” with any certainty in the final recount of votes from the elections of last Nov. 26.

The Supreme Electoral Court (TSE) of Honduras proclaimed on Sunday current President Juan Orlando Hernandez as the new president-elect, which was promptly rejected by the Opposition Alliance as it called for “immediate mobilization” due to the presumed fraud that kept Nasralla from winning.

Nasralla said he will provide data to complement the technical report of the OAS which, he said, was the only organization with the “technological representation” on hand able to “verify fraud,” while the European Union and the United States lacked those resources.

“We’ve presented recordings of the president of the republic with the head of the TSE, in which he asks that the results not be announced until the results of 5,800 ballot boxes could be changed out of a total of 18,000 where the distance between the candidates was not very great,” Nasralla said about the evidence presented.

He also said that 5,800 certified ballot-box returns were not sent in from the place they originated, adding that many of them lacked the “atx” label, while others had it, “which proves some were altered.”

In that sense, he noted that more than 200,000 votes were counted “that later did not appear among the votes,” and that many of the ballots registered over the past few week were “smooth” and not “doubled over the way they’re handed in at the voting booth.”
