Former President Manuel Zelaya, leader of the Honduran opposition, demanded on Tuesday to review 18,000 polling stations to rule out the possibility of a fraud in favor of President Juan Orlando Hernández.
Zelaya rejected a proposal by the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE) to review 5,173 acts that the opposition had indicated as altered, believing the only way to avoid fraud is to review the total number of polling stations.
As an alternative, Zelaya raised the possibility of annulling the electoral process, stating that the law contemplates nullity when a claim is filed.
Ten days after the elections, Honduras still doesn’t know who will govern the country for the next four years, amid allegations of fraud in favor of President Hernández, candidate of the right-wing National Party (PN).
Suspicions of irregularities in the process have unleashed massive demonstrations, some violent, that led the government to establish a state of siege, including a nighttime curfew.
