Tegucigalpa, December 4 (RHC) – Honduran opposition candidate Xiomara Castro says a lack of supervision at many polls during last week's presidential election allowed the vote to be inflated in favor of the ruling party candidate.
The left-wing Libre party candidate also accused some small political parties of selling their poll workers' spots to the ruling National Party.
Castro, whose husband Manuel Zelaya was ousted in a 2009 military coup, is demanding a full recount of the vote and urging her supporters to take to the streets on Sunday.
Honduras' electoral court has declared conservative Juan Orlando Hernandez the winner of last Sunday's presidential election. The court says he received 37 percent of the votes compared to 29 percent for Castro, with 96 percent of the votes counted. Six other candidates shared the remaining votes.
On Monday, Honduras' electoral commission agreed to recount vote tally sheets from the presidential election.
