Insulza Pleased with Zelaya’s Post

The Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), José Miguel Insulza, today said he was pleased with the swearing in of former Honduran President José Manuel Zelaya as a deputy of the Central American Parliament (PARLACEN) in representation of his country.

"The incorporation of former President Zelaya to the PARLACEN is an act of justice, since he was elected democratically at the polls and headed the legitimately constituted government of all Honduran people, and the place he fills today in the Central American Parliament corresponds to him," Secretary General Insulza said.

The Report on the situation in Honduras, which Insulza submitted in July and was mandated by the Foreign Ministers of the hemisphere, signaled the appropriateness of former President Zelaya occupying the position that legally corresponds to him as a former Central American head of state. This designation "constitutes a further step on the road to normalizing the situation created as a consequence of the coup d’état of June 28, 2009," Secretary General Insulza said.
