One week after the holding of elections in Honduras, the EU calls for calm and restraint. We expect parties to express their concerns peacefully, using the legal mechanisms available to them.

Languages:

General elections in Honduras took place on 26 November in a largely peaceful climate - with a strong presence of domestic and international observers - which enabled Honduran citizens to broadly cast their vote freely. The European Union expects candidates and parties to respect the results and to use legal redress mechanisms to solve any electoral disputes.

The following statement of the European Union Election Observation Mission’s (EU EOM) preliminary findings is delivered before the completion of the electoral process. Critical stages of the elections remain, including the completion of results tabulation and publication, as well as the adjudication of possible complaints or appeals. The EU EOM is publishing its observations of the process so far, and will later publish a final report, referring to the entire election process and including, where appropriate, recommendations for future reference. The EU EOM may also make additional statements, if necessary.

A total of more than 100 observers will be deployed across the country on election day. The Chief Observer, Member of European Parliament Marisa Matias, arrived along with the short-term observers in her second visit to the country.

On Sunday 12 November EU EOM Honduras 2017 attended a simulation of transmission and publication of results by the Supreme Electoral Tribunal – Tribunal Supremo Electoral (TSE).
