Honduran President Zelaya Expected to Return

Friday, October 30, 2009

The political crisis in Honduras may soon be coming to an end. After weeks of negotiations, ousted President Manual Zelaya could soon return to power. We speak with Marcelo Justo in the BBC's South America bureau.

“This [was] a very modern version of a coup d’etat with a lot of institutional back-up for it. So now there’s been an agreement which [previously] seemed impossible … Latin America seemed to have left behind all this era of coup d’etat and has basically supported the idea of institutional and democratic reforms.”
