Tue Dec 1 2009 Honduran Elections Held Under Coup Regime
Pickets Protest Election at Honduran Consulate in S. F. On November 29th, Honduras held elections and the next day Porfirio Lobo, a conservative from the National Party, was announced as the next president. On the day of the election, a picket was held at the Honduran Consulate in San Francisco; protesters described the elections as a sham organized by a government installed by a military coup. They demanded that there be, "no recognition of the coup regime and its election." Brazil, Argentina and Venezuela, have refused to recognise the vote, saying that recognizing the election as valid will legitimize the military coup that lead to Zelaya's ouster.

The Organization of American States (OAS) and the Carter Center, have condemned the electoral process as illegitimate and refused to send observers. So has the United Nations and the European Union, as well as UNASUR and ALBA.

The US, Peru, Panama, Colombia, Costa Rica and Israel are the only nations to have publicly indicated recognition of the electoral process in Honduras and the future regime.
