New York, Dec 13(Just Earth News): Secretary-General António Guterres on Tuesday called on authorities in Honduras to uphold the rule of law and respect for human rights following the presidential election.

In a statement from his spokesperson, the Secretary-General said that he was concerned about violence stemming from the 26 November poll, which was decided by a small margin.

“The Secretary-General calls upon the country's political leaders, and particularly the presidential candidates, to exercise their leadership with responsibility in this crucial moment for the future of Honduras,” the spokesperson said.

He encouraged the presidential candidates to resolve their differences through dialogue and the mechanisms established by the Electoral Law.

Guterres also called on Hondurans to exercise restraint and maintain the commendable civic spirit that they demonstrated by participating in the elections.
