Sobre las elecciones en Honduras

Mary Anastacia O'Grady reflexiona sobre el proceso electoral en Honduras. En resumen, señala que la conclusión del proceso electoral constituye un triunfo en sí mismo porque, entre otras razones, le propina un alto (probablemente solo temporal) a los planes expansionistas de Hugo Chávez.

Yesterday's elections for president and Congress, held as scheduled and without incident, were the crowning achievement of that struggle.

National Party candidate Porfirio Lobo was the favorite to win in pre-election polls. Yet the name of the victor is almost beside the point. The completion of these elections is a national triumph in itself and a win for all people who yearn for liberty.
