Man who brought Honduras back from the brink seeks re-election

Thursday, November 23, 2017

The leader who brought Honduras back from the brink of being a failed state and oversaw the world’s biggest sovereign bond rally is seeking to become its first president to get re-elected in more than three decades.

Juan Orlando Hernandez, 49, has pledged to continue to cut debt under an IMF program and to try to make the Central American nation -- until recently the planet’s murder capital -- safe enough for foreign tourists to visit. He’s leading in polls ahead of the Nov. 26 vote.
