Honduran President Says His Reelection Should Not Divide the Country

TEGUCIGALPA – Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez, declared the new president-elect by the Supreme Electoral Court (TSJ) over the weekend, said on Monday that those results should not be used to divide the country.

“Nor should the electoral results be used to instigate hate and destruction,” Hernandez said. “The recent electoral results should move all Hondurans to reflect deeply... so that every one of us makes an examination of conscience and his or her own act of contrition.”

In a radio and television address, Hernandez said that for him, “the recent election revealed a restructuring of the political landscape and the need to build, with the participation of all the people of this blessed land, a national consensus that allows us to work toward a new country.”

The Opposition Alliance against the Dictatorship, led by Salvador Nasralla, slammed on Monday the statement by the US government accepting the results of the Nov. 26 elections in Honduras because “it is unaware of the shameless electoral fraud” that was perpetrated.

The US government said on Monday that if the Honduran opposition doesn’t agree with the TSE ruling, it should use the established legal provisions to appeal the proclamation of Hernandez as president-elect.

The Honduran opposition recalled that the electoral mission of the Organization of American States (OAS) in Honduras had spoken about “the “impossibility of determining a winner” in this election.

On Sunday, the TSE declared Hernandez the winner of the Nov. 26 presidential election.

Hernandez won 42.95 percent of the votes to 41.24 percent for Opposition Alliance against the Dictatorship candidate Salvador Nasralla.
