Supporters of the presidential candidate for Honduras’ Opposition Alliance against the Dictatorship, Salvador Nasralla, set fire to a barricade to block the passage between San Pedro Sula and El Progreso, 200 kilometres north of Tegucigalpa, on Dec. 4, 2017.
Honduran electoral authorities concluded a recount early Monday, more than a week after a bitterly contested presidential election, that put President Juan Orlando Hernandez in the lead, but they held back from officially declaring him the winner. “We have now finished this recount,” Supreme Electoral Tribunal president David Matamoros said, announcing that Hernandez had 42.98 percent of the vote compared with opposition leader Salvador Nasralla’s 41.39 percent.
