Honduras Says No Fraud in Presidential Elections after Second Recount

TEGUCIGALPA – The Supreme Electoral Tribunal of Honduras has not found any irregularities after a partial recount of with over 4,753 ballot boxes from the Nov. 26 presidential election ended on Sunday.

The country’s opposition has repeatedly rejected the poll’s results, accusing the TSE of fraud.

“We did not find any evidence of fraud, of vote manipulation, or of ballot stuffing in favor of either candidate,” the TSE president, David Matamoros, said at a press conference.

Matamoros’ comments came hours after the TSE finalized the second vote count of 4,753 ballot boxes, following a previous recount of 1,006 ballot boxes last week, which, according to opposition candidate Salvador Nasralla, contained fraudulent votes.

Matamoros said that the second result showed little difference compared to the original results, proving the vote’s “integrity.”

The results mean that Juan Orlando Hernandez, the ruling National Party candidate and incumbent president, won 1,410,877 votes or 42.95 percent, while Nasralla garnered 1,360,439 votes, or 41.42 percent.

Nasralla said on Sunday that the TSE should conduct a full recount of all 18,128 ballot boxes, including a review of the poll books, which would show that he actually won the election.

In addition, he accused the European Union, the Organization of American States and the United States of conspiring in the alleged fraud against him.
