"the Honduran people deserve our congratulations"

The new U.S. ambassador to the Organization of American States, Carmen Lomelin, said yesterday that "Last Sunday's elections were free, fair, transparent, and the Honduran people deserve our congratulations."

"The elections open the hope that the political crisis has come to an end," said Lomelin. "The OAS should understand that we face a victory with the elections and should not condemn them by resorting to inaccuracies and erroneous historical visions."

"Recent developments in Honduras gives us hope that the acute crisis has ended and we hope that the OAS shares our cautious optimism," said Lomelin.

Meanwhile, Jose Enrique Castillo, the Costa Rica OAS Ambassador, emphasized that "any position against the elections last Sunday would frustrate an outlet for Hondurans."
