Nasralla: Suspend Foreign Aid to Honduran Government until Election Resolved

TEGUCIGALPA – Opposition Honduran presidential candidate Salvador Nasralla called on Tuesday upon the international community to suspend foreign aid to the government in Tegucigalpa until the contentious presidential election has been resolved.

“As long as there is no agreed-upon solution regarding the conditions, I ask the international community to abstain from recognizing (the re-election of President Juan Orlando) Hernandez and to suspend foreign aid to the unconstitutional government,” said Nasralla at a Washington press conference.

Nasralla, who is claiming “fraud” in the November election, called himself the “president-elect of Honduras” after the election authorities said Hernandez had won the balloting based on results that, according to the Organization of American States, cannot be certified.

In an appearance before the media at the National Press Club, the opposition leader reiterated that the recount in the Nov. 26 election resulted in a “monumental theft” of some 400,000 votes.

Nasralla asked international organizations and countries not to recognize the TSE’s election results until it can be established “when, how and under what conditions” new elections may be held, calling for international monitoring of any such process by the OAS.

He also called upon the US to state its policy on whether or not it will recognize Hernandez, although he admitted that he could not place deadlines on the Donald Trump administration for making such a pronouncement.
