Honduras: People to Not Approve Electoral Farce

Oct 27 (Prensa Latina) The National Front against the Coup d'Etat in Honduras stated Tuesday that it will not recognize the November 29 elections if constitutional order is not re-established and President Manuel Zelaya is not restituted.

"The people will not approve the electoral farce the putschists are preparing," rural leader Rafael Alegria told Prensa Latina.

Traditional parties and the de facto government insist that these elections are a solution to the dangerous crisis unleashed in the country after the breaking of democratic order.

"The only solution to the conflict in Honduras is the restitution of democratic legality and the president elected by the people," Alegria said.

Juan Barahona, general coordinator of the Front, stressed that if those objectives are not achieved, the future of elections is uncertain.

International community organizations and several governments, included the United States, stated that they will not recognize the elections results if they are not organized in the current circumstances.
