Honduras opposition leader calls for new election

The secretary-general of the Organization of American States is calling for a new presidential election in Honduras.

There have been protests after last month’s contested vote between incumbent Juan Orlando Hernandez and opposition leader Salvador Nasralla.

Honduras’ constitution specifies one term for the president, but the pro-Hernandez Supreme Court ruled two years ago that that limitation did not apply to him.
