Honduras holds primaries with president eying re-election

Monday, March 13, 2017

Hondurans were called to vote in party primaries on Sunday, a first polling phase President Juan Orlando Hernandez hopes will lead to his re-election despite a constitutional one-term limit.

Seventeen parties are fielding candidates for local councils, national and Central American lawmakers, three vice presidents and for the post of president. Hernandez' bid for a new four-year mandate at the head of the ruling National Party is buoyed by a Supreme Court ruling two years ago discarding the term-limit clause in the 1982 constitution.
