Election Computer System Ready to Go

At approximately 15 minutes past four o’clock on Sunday, November 29th, the Computer Center of the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE), will start receiving calls from the 15,295 polling stations throughout Honduras, beginning the process for “TREP”, an acronym for the Transmission Results of the Electoral Preliminaries.

TREP is a program that already had its first successful test on November 30th of last year, during the primary elections where Elvin Santos won the Liberal Party votes, and Porfirio Lobo Sosa, the National Party’s.

On that occasion, TREP had no major difficulties, and this time, with the installation of expanded logistics capabilities, there is expected to be no delay. The TSE believes that between seven or eight in the evening of that day, it will have the ability to give the first report, after counting 40 percent of the votes.

Technicians from the TSE, led by the Peruvian consultant David Santamaria, installed the computer center in the Honduras Maya Hotel. A parallel center will be ready to operate, however, in the event that the system has technical problems.
