Guaymuras Talks continue today

The OAS-sponsored talks to find a solution to the Honduran political crisis enter a crucial phase today as the main point of contention is put on the table: the restitution of Manuel Zelaya to the presidency. The zelayistas insist this point is "non-negotiable," while the Micheletti administration has made it clear that there is absolutely no way Zelaya can be returned to the presidency as he was legally deposed (see here and here) for multiple violations of the Constitution and Honduran laws in his attempt to perpetuate himself in power. Hopefully a middle ground can be found that allows Hondurans to put behind them this unfortunate and extremely harmful situation that began with Manuel Zelaya's actions against the Constitution.
