Tegucigalpa: Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez declared himself the winner of elections before official results were announced -- and his top rival did the same.

"I`m very content, happy, because I`ve been seeing... a huge number of exit polls and real-time processing of the ballots and the result is more than clear: we won this election," Hernandez told a crowd that cheered him in the capital.

Shortly after his announcement, Salvador Nasralla of the leftist Alliance Against the Dictatorship coalition also proclaimed himself to be the winner.
