President Leads Second Vote Recount in Honduras

TEGUCIGALPA – The incumbent president of Honduras was leading against the main opposition leader in a second special recount of 4,753 ballot boxes late Saturday, after 75.34 percent of the recount was completed.

The incumbent president, Juan Orlando Hernandez, of the National Party, was leading with 50.04 percent of the votes against 32.65 percent for his opponent Salvador Nasralla, of the Opposition Alliance Against Dictatorship, with 1,172 ballot boxes remaining to be recounted, according to data from the website of the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE) on Saturday around 6 pm.

The recount of these 4,753 ballot boxes, which began on Thursday, has been carried out in the face of allegations of fraud by Nasralla against the TSE in the general elections held on Nov. 26.

Nasralla has said he would not recognize the TSE’s results and on Friday demanded the annulment the presidential elections.

According to TSE’s latest report on the elections, Juan Orlando Hernandez secured 42.98 percent of the votes, while Salvador Nasralla secured 41.38 percent of the total votes before the two special recounts.

The president-elect of Honduras is expected to be finalized with the second special recount.
