Honduran Leader Announces He Will Step Down

Honduran democratic leader Roberto Micheletti is stepping down– for seven days prior to the national election that is scheduled on Sunday November 29.
The Age reported:

Honduras’ de facto leader Roberto Micheletti said on Thursday he planned to step down for seven days for the country’s November 29 national elections.

“With this measure I aim to concentrate all the attention of Honduran people on the electoral process and not on the political crisis,” Micheletti said in an announcement broadcast on national media.

Micheletti is not standing in the elections, which will see a successor chosen to President Manuel Zelaya, whose ouster in a June 28 coup set off months of political crisis in Honduras.
