Both candidates claim win in Honduras election

Monday, November 25, 2013

Conservative ruling party candidate Juan Hernández claimed victory in Honduras' presidential election on Sunday as a partial vote count put him ahead.

But his leftist rival Xiomara Castro also said she was the winner, setting the stage for possible conflict.

The electoral authority said a partial count of votes gave National Party candidate Juan Hernandez some 34.3 percent support while Xiomara Castro had almost 28.7 percent.
