Honduras Election: What's at Stake for the U.S.?

Ad Feedback

Honduras now has a newly elected president.

About 56 percent of the voters preferred conservative rancher Porfriro Lobo over his opponent.

Hondurans are hopeful the election ends the month-long political crisis that began in June when President Manuel Zelaya was removed from office.

But it appears Zelaya will not go peacefully. He claims about 65 percent of Hondurans refused to vote, making the election illegitimate and illegal.

He wants voters to go to the polls again.

CBN News Latin America Correspondent Stan Jeter appeared on Monday's CBN Newschannel's Morning program to discuss what's at stake for the U.S. and why it is so important to settle this political crisis.  Click play to watch the CBN News report and the interview.
