Latinos in Florida have launched campaign to nominate Roberto Micheletti for the Nobel Peace Prize

Miami, United States. The Francisco Morazán Honduran Organization and America's Democracy Watch kicked off this Saturday the campaign to collect signatures supporting the nomination of interim president, Roberto Micheletti, for the Nobel Peace Prize 2010.

Leaders of Latin American communities residing in Florida yesterday issued a statement announcing the effort that will be directed to those who make the nominations for the Peace Prize in Norway.

Roberto Micheletti assumed the presidency of Honduras in place of Manuel Zelaya, who was dismissed by the National Congress of Honduras on 28 June 2009 for trying to stage a National Constituent Assembly, which is prohibited by the current Constitution.

Translated from El Heraldo

After the Honduran National Congress removed Manuel Zelaya from power for multiple violations of our constitution, and immediately elected Roberto Micheletti to replace him on June 28, 2009, Mr. Micheletti deftly maneuvered in a very unstable and volatile environment, and was miraculously able to keep Honduras from unraveling into a civil war. This all unfolded as Hugo Chavez and his ALBA and OAS cronies were doing everything possible to destabilize and isolate Honduras. If civil war avoidance is not a good reason for a man to be considered for a Nobel Peace Prize, I don't know what is.
