ALBA countries fail to get OAS to not recognize elections

The representatives of the countries of the Bolivarian Alternative for the Americas (ALBA) in the Assembly of the Permanent Council of the Organization of American States (OAS) "could not" formalize any official position on the return of former President Manuel Zelaya nor together reach agreement to prevent recognition of the general election next November 29.

The assessor and overseer of the United Nations (UN), John Anderson Reed, reiterated that after the UN indicated that the OAS should continue to address the case of Honduras, former President Zelaya "has lost his power" to win support to achieve a possible reinstatement as was "required" by these organizations 24 and 48 hours after being dismissed under Honduran law.

"It is all decided and the international community publicly accepted that whatever decision the sovereign National Congress makes in relation to the reinstatement or not of Manuel Zelaya, they will support and recognize the general elections in Honduras. This was demonstrated in the Security Council meeting This Tuesday, "said Anderson to Hondudiario.

He added that this past Tuesday, "the ALBA countries in the OAS attempted to turns their backs on the electoral process in Honduras, but could not even agree on a joint statement."
