Members Briefing with Honduran Supreme Electoral Tribunal
Wednesday, October 21st, 1:00 pm
October 14, 2009
On Wednesday, October 21st, the members of the Supreme Electoral Tribunal of Honduras will join us to discuss the elections scheduled to take place in Honduras on November 29, 2009.
No matter how one views the current situation in Honduras, it is critical that these elections remain separate and independent from the current political fray. And, as more and more attention is placed on the legitimacy of the Honduran elections, it is important to recognize that the date of these elections, the presidential candidates, and the presidential term were determined nearly a year ago and nothing has changed since.
This briefing will help us to better understand what measures are being implemented to ensure that these elections will be carried out in a free, fair, democratic, and transparent manner. In addition, the Electoral Tribunal will be able to discuss any challenges it is facing in carrying out the electoral process due to international partners withholding assistance or public support for the November elections.
The delegation will include the President of the Electoral Tribunal, Mr. Jose Saul Escobar Andrade, and his fellow magistrates, Enrique Ortez Sequeira, and David Andres Matamoros Batson.
I hope you are able to join us for this important discussion. If you have any questions, or to confirm your attendance, please contact Amber Garlock at email@example.com or extension 6-8467.
