Cuban president congratulates Xiomara Castro after Honduran elections

Havana, Nov 29 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel on Monday congratulated Xiomara Castro, candidate of the Liberty and Refounding Party, who is leading the vote count of Sunday's elections in Honduras.

“Twelve years have passed after the coup d’état against Manuel Zelaya before the Honduran people could achieve this Sunday’s resounding victory in the polls. Congratulations to President-elect Xiomara Castro. Latin America and the Caribbean also celebrates with #Honduras,” the president wrote on his Twitter account.

According to the National Electoral Council (CNE) in its first official preliminary report, the candidate for the opposition alliance had 554,000 votes, equivalent to 53.61 percent.

With that figure, Castro surpassed with 205,000 votes Nasry Asfura, candidate of the ruling National Party, who had around 350,000 ballots, for 33.95 percent.

The third place went to Liberal Party candidate Yani Rosenthal, who had almost more than 95,000 votes, barely nine percent.

In reference to the challenges of the next Government, lawyer Doris Gutierrez, legislator for the Innovation and Unity Party, one of the member organizations of the opposition alliance, told Prensa Latina that they fulfilled one of the proposed goals: to defeat the political force in government, “the only way to defeat them was through unity.”
