In Honduras, the opposition party, the Alliance Against the Dictatorship, has filed an appeal with election officials demanding incumbent President Juan Orlando Hernández’s re-election be annulled because of fraud in the November 26 election. The Organization of American States has also called for a re-election amid reports of widespread fraud and vote rigging. But the United States—which backs Hernández—has endorsed his re-election. The contested vote sparked weeks of protests in which at least 22 people have been killed in the ensuing military crackdown against protesters.
