Political crisis in Honduras: the elected president offers a position to the leader of the dissidents – Le Monde

-

On the eve of her swearing in, Honduran President-elect Xiomara Castro (left) on Wednesday January 26 offered a high post in her government to MP Jorge Calix, at the center of a serious political crisis that is endangering her presidency.

“I offered Jorge Calix to join the government as government coordinator in order to unite us in the rebuilding of Honduras”, announced M.me Castro on Twitter. The publication is accompanied by a photo of his meeting with the dissident MP. The president, who is due to take office on Thursday, did not say whether Mr. Calix had accepted her offer, or what exact role he would play in the government.

The attempt by the president-elect to find a way out of the crisis comes the day after the installation of two competing parliaments. One is chaired by Luis Redondo, supported by the Free Party of Mme Castro, and the other by Mr. Calix, elected by Libre dissidents and right-wing opposition deputies.

The dissidents refused to honor an agreement between their party and its allies in the Savior of Honduras Party (PSH), which was instrumental in the victory of Mme Castro. According to this agreement, Mr. Redondo, of the PSH, was to be elected President of Parliament.

In the fight against corruption and drug trafficking

Mr. Calix was elected by more than 70 of the 128 incumbent parliamentarians, during a session held outside the capital. Mr. Redondo, meanwhile, was elected to the seat of Parliament, besieged by supporters of Mr.me Castro, by 40 titular deputies and an approximately equal number of substitute deputies. Each of the two assemblies claims the legitimacy of parliamentary representation and expresses its unfailing loyalty to the elected president, as well as its support for her program.

If Mr. Calix accepts Mr.me Castro, the presidency of Parliament would go to Mr. Redondo. Another candidate of consensus could however be finally elected at the head of the assembly.

Parliament’s support is essential for the implementation of the M programme Castro, who wants to transform the country, plagued by corruption and the influence of drug traffickers who have infiltrated the state to its highest levels.

According to Agence France-Presse sources familiar with the negotiations, they were followed closely by diplomats, particularly Americans. US Vice President Kamala Harris is due to attend the swearing-in of Xiomara Castro on Thursday. “We are closely monitoring the situation in Parliament. We believe that it is the Hondurans who must find a solution to overcome the differences, in a way that is consistent with their Constitution and their laws”, a senior US administration official said on Wednesday in Washington.
