In 2009, the Honduran military deposed elected President Manuel Zelaya. First elected in 2006, Zelaya had moved to the left over the course of his Presidency, and had called for a national referendum to revise the Honduran constitution. After the coup, Zelaya remained in exile in the Dominican Republic. Now, Zelaya’s wife, Xiomara Castro, has taken up the leftist banner in Honduran politics and is running for the Presidency herself, opposing conservative Juan Hernandez. Both candidates are seeking to replace conservative Porfiro Lobo Sosa, who succeeded Zelaya in 2009, but is not running again. WORT’s Norm Stockwell was in Honduras, tracking the 2013 elections.
