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.
