Zelaya is back in the political game of Honduras

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Three years after he was ousted from the presidency following a coup in Honduras, former President Manuel Zelaya is stepping back into the political game.

Three Honduran political parties chose their candidates for next year's general elections in primary voting Sunday.

Zelaya's wife, Xiomara Castro, is running uncontested as the presidential candidate in 2013 for the leftist Liberty and Refoundation party, or Libre, while the ousted president is seeking to be a congressional candidate.
