Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
With about 70 percent of ballots counted, TV entertainer Salvador Nasralla was leading by a margin of five points, election official Marcos Ramiro Lobo told Reuters on Monday afternoon, by which time results updates had ground to a halt.


Nasralla is backed by former President Manuel Zelaya, who was ousted in a 2009 coup after he proposed a referendum on his re-election. The dramatic comeback by the one-time leftist risks fuelling concern in Washington.

Hondurans are lucky that Clinton isn't US President.

Yes, egomaniacal pursuit of political power facilitated plenty damage to by-standers as US secretary of state.

However I'm reluctant to attribute luck to Clinton now deposed from US offices of trust or purportedly free election process in Honduras, I will agree no one worse off because of those events.

Until further notice.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
