While this Sunday’s presidential elections are a test of President Hernández’ controversial re-election, the legislative elections will likely reveal the splintering of Honduras’ one-time bi-party system.
By failing to tie a sanctions policy to demands for credible election observers in the October 15 elections, the international community bought more time for the Maduro government and sold out the opposition.
The Maduro government refused to invite standard, professional election observation groups to monitor Sunday’s balloting. Instead a previously unknown group, CEELA, showed up to praise the process. Who are they?
La derecha no debiera celebrar la poca competencia que las encuestas registran en la campaña presidencial, porque la democracia se fortalece cuando hay una cerrada pugna entre, al menos, dos candidatos.
