Honduras .

Representatives of the government of deposed Roberto Micheletti Manuel Zelaya signed late Thursday in this capital an agreement to end the political crisis that took to Honduras in the air for 124 days.

The agreement was signed under heavy pressure from the U.S. government decided to send his top heavy artillery led by the undersecretary of state for Latin America Department of State Thomas Shannon.

Shanonn said Thursday morning that the basis of political agreement were in place and just had no will to sign it.

"We have reached an agreement to end the political impasse," said the lawyer Vilma Morales of the delegation Micheletto, who stressed that the solution to the political crisis was reached in adherence to the Constitution and laws Honduran

The signing was delayed for several hours after the delegation of the deposed Manuel Zelaya gave long and, according to press reports, the deposed president was unwilling to sign.

Minutes before the signing of the agreement, President Roberto Micheletti announced its authorization to sign the document ending the political crisis facing the country since last June 28.

"Tonight I am pleased to announce that a few minutes ago I authorized my negotiating team to sign a final agreement that marks the beginning of the end of the political situation", whereby the return of Manuel Zelaya will be decided by Congress after consulting Supreme Court of Justice (CSJ).

Speaking from Government House, the Honduran president reiterated that "no individual is above the future of Honduras" and that "we can not put personal interests over the collective good of this great nation."

The deal approved by Micheletti contains eight points, including the creation of a coalition government, rejected the amnesty policy, recognition of the elections on 29 November, the creation of a verification commission, a truth commission and the return of Manuel Zelaya decided by the National Congress of the SJC opinion.

"Accepting this proposal represents a significant concession by the government," the president said.

"We have always been firm that is the Supreme Court who should decide on the possible return of Mr. Zelaya. But we also understand that our people are calling to turn the page of our history of these difficult times we live. For this reason I have decided to support this new proposal for a final agreement as soon as possible. "

Micheletti thanked the U.S. delegation to the Organization of American States (OAS) "for their important support mediator" in the political crisis.

The dialogue began in Honduras Guaymuras on 7 October under the auspices of the Organization of American States (OAS), however, was interrupted by the commission Zelaya, who rejected the government proposal Micheletti for the Supreme Court decided the return of the former president.

The commission resumed talks Thursday, a day after the arrival of a high-level commission sent by the United States, who won in two days the agreement that neither the Nobel Peace Prize Oscar Arias, nor the pressures of Hugo Chávez, or international sanctions had made it possible.

Pray.

Be strong, be brave. Hang tough. Don’t give up.

Do not let anyone stop these elections. Go into the streets if you have to. If the elections are “delayed” you’re in a dictatorship. Best nip it in the bud in that very moment.

Uh, again. The army did what they could. It may be your turn next time.

What a shameful episode for the United States State Department: destroying the Honduran Constitution for a fellow leftist, Mr. Zelaya.

Honduran elections scheduled only four weeks away, November 29.

I can only imagine the pressure our State Department will bring to bear on the Honduran Congress. If your President couldn’t withstand it I don’t believe the congress will, either.

I agree. The risk is high that democracy will be crushed in both Honduras and the USA. Shame on America. The Chavez model of fake popular elections and sham representative government could be in our future.

So there’s gonna be a coalition government?

Or will this agreement have the effect of delaying the election?

We must demand from our Government, our current Leftist inspired Government what their reasoning for this interference in the affairs of the Honduran State is.

Every effort must be made to establish the underlying purpose of the efforts of the Obama Administration in this affair.

We, and the World need to know why this current lot in our Government side with the likes os Chavez, Castro, and other notorious Leftist, Communist Dictatorships in our hemisphere.

Obama, the alleged Progressive Democrats, the One World Order must be exposed, and their purpose, their goals clearly displayed to even the dumbest SOB amongst us.

(Because they vote too. That’s how we got here.)

the return of Manuel Zelaya will be decided by Congress after consulting Supreme Court of Justice

It's pathetic that the US pressured Micheletti to agree to anything, but it looks like he didn't concede much. It is highly unlikely that the legislature or the court would allow Zelaya to return. I think both were nearly unanimous in supporting his removal.

But I wonder what "to return" means? Does that mean return to the country or return to the presidency?

And what is meant by a coalition government? Honduras doesn't have a parliamentary government, and beyond that Zelaya and Micheletti were members of the same party, so I don't get what the practical meaning of this would be.

It sounds to me like Michelletti held strong and that, while the U.S. State Department wanted the deal to put Zelaya back in power in violation of the Honduran Constitution, the final agreement leaves confirms that the November elections will go on as planned and leaves Zelaya’s fate up to the Honduran Congress and Supreme Court. Given what we know about those two bodies, they will not subvert the Honduran Constitution and Zelaya will not return to power, not even temporarily.

I wrote to the constitutional government of Honduras a few weeks ago to express my support, and have been receiving several press releases a day from them by e-mail ever since. I’ll see what they say in today’s e-mail, but based on prior press releases I think that the final agreement includes all of the points on which the parties had previously ageed (earlier Michelletti had said that 95% of the points had been agreed upon, and only Zelaya’s fate remained to be decided) and the issue regarding Zelaya was settled ina way acceptable to the government. I thonk it says a lot that Zelaya had to be pushed to sign the agreement—frankly, I think it’s a face-saving measure by the U.S. and other regional powers that knew thatif no agreement was reached prior to the election that people would realize how little influence they truly wield.

In short, I think that the good guys won against all odds, and Obama ended up throwing Zelaya under the bus.

“Coalition” is the way the left is currently overturning the electoral process and getting its people into power no matter what. Obama and his minions managed to do this in Kenya, where Obama’s Muslim Marxist cousin lost the election (even after leading his supporters in bloody mayhem throughout the country) but then charged fraud and used the threat of more violence to force Kenya to install him as a sort of “co-president,” even though there is no provision in the Kenyan constitution for this type of thing.

Obama has pushed for the same thing (a “coalition government”) in Afghanistan, where he is for some reason very eager to install Abdullah Abdullah, even though the latter lost the election and there is no provision for “coalitions” in Afghan law.

Why are some of the posters on this thread upset?

The only reasonable interpretation of this agreement is that Obama caved in to the patriots in Honduras. Their Congress and Supreme Court are never going to permit Zelaya to return to power; not for even one day.

This is nothing more than an attempt by Obama to look like a statesman. The fact is the people of Honduras told Obama to FO and Obama realized he got bitch-slapped and tried to find a way safe a little bit of his dignity.

What am I missing from this? To me, this reads like an agreement for both sides to abide by the outcome of a vote that the Honduran Congress has yet to make. The vote will take place after Congress gets an opinion from the Supreme Court. Congress could easily say that Zelaya is still out and even that he should be prosecuted, and he has agreed to abide by the vote.

Yes, I understand he could be reinstated also, and Micheletti has also agreed to abide, but if I were a betting man...

Am I missing something?

The US State Department has forced Honduras to make an extra-Constitutional agreement.

Zelaya was rightfully removed from office and the VP took over the position, consistent with the Honduran Constitution. Anything else is outside the Honduran Constitution. There is no provision in the Honduran Constitution for a coalition government.

The likely outcome is that Zelaya will never see political power again, and elections will take place as scheduled. However, there is LOTS of room for interference from outside parties.

I don’t like this at all.

This may have merely been a saving face concession for Zelaya’s benefit, courtesy of our own Usurper. We’ll have to wait and see how it all plays out.

I hope that as part of this deal, Honduras gets ALL the US aid it is supposed to get- this is one case where I WANT U.S. foreign aid to go to its intended beneficiary.

I hope you are right and thats the way things will work out. The US & OAS response to this this thing has been beyond weird. It seems that all the heads of states view the removal of any one them as a threat to all of them. Just cause is not a factor for them.

Did any of you read the article fully? Honestly?

Honduras has not been thrown under the bus ...

Re-Read the article!

Elections are 4 weeks away and will happen ...

Mr Zelaya is not running in the elections, nor does the article say ANYTHING about him returning to power IMMEDIATELY ...

His fate rests in the hands of some of the same people who kicked him out of office in the first place.
