Political Agreement Signed

The committees today signed the final agreement that seeks to end the political crisis.

“The agreement is fully signed,” said the representative of the delegation for Zelaya, Rodil Rivera, without giving details on the timing of the restitution of Zelaya to power.

Congress is in recess, therefore in order to rule on the re-institution of Zelaya, an extraordinary session would have to be convened.

“With the negotiation of outstanding issues, delegates of the two commissions have just signed the Agreement of Tegucigalpa-San Jose”, announced the Secretary of Political Affairs of the Organization of American States (OAS), Victor Rico, at the Tegucigalpa hotel where the event took place.

Rico explained that following the resolution yesterday, the most controversial point of the agreement, concerning the restitution of Zelaya, will ultimately be decided by Congress.

In regards to Congress debating the refund or not of Zelaya, there is no deadline specified for a decision.

“I am sure that members of Congress have a full understanding of the importance and the political urgency of these determinations, and hope they do in the shortest time possible,” Rico stated.

“We expect this to materialize in a reasonably short period,” he added.

The verification committee, who will oversee compliance to the agreement, will consist of two representatives of the OAS, in order to coordinate the committee, and one delegate from each of the two parties.

Immediately after the signing of the Agreement of Tegucigalpa-San Jose, the two committees went to Congress to start the process on deciding on the restitution of Zelaya.

With regard to the lifting of sanctions by the OAS, Rico noted that “it can not be covered by an agreement, that is a decision that has to be made in a meeting of the OAS General Assembly.

“This afternoon there will be a meeting of the Permanent Council in Washington, where the Secretary General will report on the conclusion of this agreement, and the Permanent Council will determine the next steps to take and the possible convening of the General Assembly,” he announced.

Insulza also claimed that the OAS “has indicated that it is able to deploy an observer mission from the OAS for the month-end election.

    So Z’liar is saying that without reinstatement there is no agreement , but the agreement gives the Honduran Congress the power to vote on the reinstatement. So what is going on? Were the Z’liars representatives who signed the agreement assured that Congress, under some kind of pressure, would sign the reinstatement? This is beginning to sound like a joke! This would be total intervention into a sovereign country. Go to Cuba, Venezuela , Iran, North Corea etc. where the world REALLY needs to intervene. Leave Honduras alone!

    The Congress of Honduras holds the future of the country in their hands.

    This is the time when we will find out how corrupt (or not ) our people really are.

    For the Zelayistas to insist congress makes a decision (and not the Courts) they must have a reason, an Ace up their sleeve.

    There is enough corrupt people in Honduras for this to be a worrisome situation.

    I pray that our will be safe.

    Our people are already poor enough and have suffered tremendoulsy in the hands of the Gangs and common thugs, drug trafficking is having a big impact on he country’s safety also.

    Zelaya back in power for a minute is too long, please, I beg of you Congressmen, do not sell our country.

    Zelaya in power can put Honduras in the same situation Venezuela is now, or have you forgotten that Chavez was also ousted, and then allowed back in?

    ok…. we all know that z’liar is a puppet of Chavez and follows his leading.

    We all know the Chavez has lots of money, because of the oil his country has.

    so…. what if Chavez offered $1 million to each member of Congress for their vote to support z’liar?……. would that not be a cheap purchase price of a country??

    Let’s pray for the members of Congress, that their vote would be one that supports all of Honduras and the upcoming election in 30 days.
