Background

The EU EOM has been in Honduras since 11 October, and has observed the different stages of the election process, within the framework of its commitment to neutrality, objectivity and non-interference, and it has shared its observations with Honduran citizens at key moments.

Political freedoms and the commitment of voters prevailed over violence and, despite shortcomings, the Election Commission delivered the elections within a tight timeframe.

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.

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.
