Honduran Congress begins deliberations on Zelaya's fate today

TEGUCIGALPA .- The day has finally arrived. Today the full Congress is convening for a unique and unusual meeting, on which depends not only on the fate of former President Manuel Zelaya Rosales, but also the willingness of the international community to recognize the government of Porfirio Lobo Sosa.

At 10:00 AM members are summoned to begin the meeting, described as historic, just as was the meeting on 28 June when Zelaya was dismissed after deputies approved a report on alleged violations of the Constitution of the Republic.

The chairman of the legislature, Jose Alfredo Saavedra, announced that the regular duties of Congress begins today to hear outstanding issues, which are diverse, including the San Jose Agreement and the opinions of the four institutions consulted by the Congressional Board to define their position on that topic.
