In Honduras, progressive presidential candidate Salvador Nasralla has declared victory, as he continues to hold an unexpected lead in Sunday’s election results. His challenger, President Juan Orlando Hernández, had been widely expected to win despite increasing concerns about the conservative president’s authoritarianism and consolidation of power. But by Monday evening, Nasralla was leading Hernandez by 5 percent of the vote, with nearly 60 percent counted. This is Nasralla.
Salvador Nasralla: “As you all know, this has already been won. Don’t be swayed, please, by what some media are saying. What has happened is that we have broken the regular plan, by which, for the first time, it was the people who voted for their president. This was the people’s choice.”
