OAS to Discuss Honduras Elections

The Secretary General of the Organization of American States Jose Miguel Insulza, said that on December 4th, the OAS Permanent Council in Washington will discuss the elections in Honduras that took place today.

Insulza told reporters Sunday that the meeting, devoted exclusively to Honduras, will also consider the decision of the U.S. Congress on the request of returning deposed President Manuel Zelaya.

“On December 4th, the Permanent Council of the OAS will meet to review the situation after the elections and the decision of the Congress of Honduras on December 2,” Insulza said at the headquarters of the XIX Ibero-American summit, in a luxury spa hotel in Estoril, 25 km west of Lisbon.

Insulza said he is following “very closely” the development of the Honduran elections.

Asked about the support for recognition of the election expressed by Costa Rica, Panama and Peru, Insulza said, “I understand that nobody is considering recognizing the de facto government, that governments are talking about after January 27th”, when the new government takes over.

The OAS suspended Hondurs after the coup last June, ignoring their request for withdrawal, but since has failed to reach common positions on the crisis in the country.

    The OAS is a total joke and leftist Insulza looks more like a puppet of Chavez every day.

    Wow – Insulza must smoke from the same pipe that Chavez and Zelaya use. Why discuss Honduras – it must hurt so much that he could not take any more chickens to Chavez’s farm.
    We are not part of OAS so what is he planning now? The guy is nuts and so are those that consider him being a leader. He should go to Venezuela where the students on hunger strike are asking for him to help – but of course he cannot rattle the biggest hen of the group Chavez.
