Hon­duran pres­i­den­tial race nar­rows:

The Washington Post - - THE WORLD -

New par­tial re­sults in Hon­duras’s pres­i­den­tial elec­tion have nar­rowed chal­lenger Sal­vador Nas­ralla’s lead over in­cum­bent Juan Or­lando Hernán­dez to less than one point, rais­ing ten­sions. A sur­prise five­point lead for Nas­ralla has steadily dwin­dled since ini­tial re­sults were re­ported. Now, with 76 per­cent of the votes tal­lied, the chal­lenger had 42.6 per­cent and Hernán­dez 41.7 per­cent. A long pause in up­dated re­turns that fol­lowed re­ports of Nas­ralla’s lead has fed sus­pi­cions among his sup­port­ers.
