Tegucigalpa, January 8 (RHC)-- In Honduras, thousands of people took to the streets of the capital Tegucigalpa over the weekend to protest the re-election of President Juan Orlando Hernández, saying the vote was marred by widespread fraud.
The demonstration was led by opposition candidate Salvador Nasralla, who challenged the U.S.-backed incumbent in the November 26th presidential election.
Election observers and the Organization of American States have called for a new election in Honduras, saying the first vote was so filled with irregularities that it was impossible to declare a winner.
Protesters have called for a national strike and boycott of Hernández’s scheduled inauguration on January 27th.
