TSE in D.C. meetings with Republican legislators

Washington, USA. Members of the Tribunal Supremo Electoral of Honduras, TSE, assured the U.S. Congress yesterday there will be no repression when the organ assumes control of the armed forces for the November elections and that measures will be taken to ensure "free and fair elections."

"The TSE is making its best effort to provide the best conditions so that on November 29 there will be free and fair elections with universal and secret ballot," said TSE president, Saul Escobar Andrade after meeting with Republican leaders of the House of Representatives. 

Andrade Escobar was joined at the meeting by the judges Enrique Ortez Sequeira and David Andres Matamoros Batson. 

During the closed-door meeting to which only part of the media had access, Matamoros Batson told the congressmen that there is no repression in the run up to the elections.
