Porfirio Lobo, the president-elect of Honduras, plans to meet ousted Honduran president Manuel Zelaya next week in Santo Domingo to begin a "political dialogue”, Dominican President Leonel Fernandez said on Friday.
Honduras` deposed president Manuel Zelaya said on Sunday that he would stay in the Brazilian embassy in the Honduran capital for as long as Brasilia allowed him to and that he would be willing to talk to the new president-elect.
Sunday`s election will likely accomplish what the plotters of a coup set out to do 5 months ago: end the political career of leftist president Manuel Zelaya and replace him with a more moderate leader from Honduras` establishment.
Ousted president Manuel Zelaya is asking the Obama administration why, after pressing for his reinstatement, it now says it will recognise upcoming Honduran elections even if he isn`t returned to power first.
Lawmakers will wait until Tuesday to consider a US-brokered agreement that could return deposed president Manuel Zelaya to power, despite diplomats` pleas to not delay an end to the country`s four-month-old political crisis.
