Honduras is caught in another political crisis

Friday, December 14, 2012


On global rosters of failing states, Honduras doesn’t even crack the top 50, yet by many grim measures the troubled Central American republic is barely clinging to its status as a functioning country.

Three years after former President Manuel Zelaya was run out of office at gunpoint in his pajamas, Lobo is struggling.

He has twice warned that his enemies are conspiring to oust him in a coup, and he then provoked a constitutional crisis with the judges’ removal, an act that legal scholars describe as everything from an abuse of power to a betrayal of the country.
