Honduras: Protesters march against alleged presidential election fraud

Protests against alleged electoral fraud continued in Tegucigalpa on Friday, after opposition parties presented formal requests to have the elections annulled earlier in the day. Demonstrators called for incumbent Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez to resign. “We won the elections in this country. The Alianza won the elections, and President Juan Orlando wants to steal them. Apart from... Еще being illegal the fact that he is re-electing himself, he wants to steal the elections along with the National Court,» claimed one of the protesters. The Alianza de Oposicion (Opposition Alliance) and the Liberal Party have submitted official documents calling for the November 26 election to be annulled and for a recount to take place. The official electoral results left President Juan Orlando Hernandez 1.6 points ahead of Alianza de Oposicion Contra la Dictadura (Opposition Alliance against Dictatorship) leader Salvador Nasralla. However, both men have claimed victory.
