Hernandez Receives Green Light to Run for Reelection as Honduras President

TEGUCIGALPA – Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez on Wednesday received authorization to run for reelection in the 2017 general election, a situation rejected by the political opposition alleging that it violates the constitution.

The Supreme Election Court (TSE) voted 2-1 that Hernandez may register to run for reelection as the candidate of the governing National Party.

“The Court ruled in favor of the registration” of Hernandez, said court president Erick Mauricio Rodriguez, reading a statement issued by the entity.

Rodriguez was the dissenting vote against allowing Hernandez’s candidacy, and he emphasized that he cast his “no” vote because the reelection move violates constitutional rules.

The current Honduran Constitution prohibits presidential reelection, but the Constitutional Court has left the possibility open with a 2015 ruling.

Hernandez – who took office on Jan. 27, 2014 – has said that in the end it will be the Honduran people who will decide at the polls whether he will continue in office for another four-year term.
