European Union External Action

22 EU long term observers will be deployed to all departments of Honduras

The European Union Election Observation Mission (EU EOM) to Honduras 2017 will deploy on Wednesday 25 October 22 long-term observers (LTOs) to the departments of Honduras. The long-term observers will leave Tegucigalpa in the morning to their respective deployment stations across the country.

The long-term observers will work in teams of two, covering urban and rural areas. The EU observers will be joined by a group of 40 short-term observers shortly before election day, taking the total number of EU observers to around 100. The long-term observers will remain in the field until some days after polling.

EU election observation missions do not interfere in the organisation of the election itself. Instead, they collect and analyse factual information concerning the election process and provide an independent public assessment.
