Ex President Zelaya Might Return to Honduras

Tegucigalpa - Former President Manuel Zelaya plans to return to Honduras in May, in the wake of efforts started this month with the mediation of Venezuela, Deputy Coordinator of the National People´s Resistance Front (FNRP) Juan Barahona announced.

Barahona said that the FNRP fully trust the mediation of President Hugo Chavez so that institutional order can be restored in Honduras.

Leaders of the resistance front participated along with Zelaya in a meeting on Saturday in Caracas with Chavez, who expressed his willingness to contribute to restore peace and democracy in Honduras. Zelaya´s return is a main demand made by the international community to Honduran President Porfirio Lobo so that the country can be re-admitted into the Organization of American States.

"The OAS General Assembly is scheduled for early June and ex President Zelaya has to be in Honduras before the country is accepted again in the organization," said Barahona.

Zelaya was ousted by a coup and taken to Costa Rica on June 28, 2009.

Three months later he managed to enter Honduras unexpectedly, and remained in the Brazilian Embassy until he left for the Dominican Republic in January 2010.

Besides demanding full guarantees for the return of the former president, the anti-coup resistance front demands the return of all people from exile, the defense of human rights and the call for a National Constituent Assembly.
