The ruling National Party’s Honduran presidential candidate, Nasri Aspura, admitted on Tuesday that he lost the presidential election last Sunday.
Preliminary results gave left-wing candidate Siomaro Castro a wider lead than Asfura, but the turnout dropped Sunday night, creating uncertainty.
However, the National Party said in a statement that it would work with the incoming government to create a “better Honduras”.
For their part, the local media released photos of the two candidates speaking in unison, announcing that Nasri had personally congratulated Asfura Castro.
The National Electoral Council has not yet formally announced the winner and the vote count continues.
Castro’s victory for the Freedom and Review Party The Left will return to power for the first time since her husband, Manuel Zelaya, withdrew from office in a coup 12 years ago.
