Hondurans choose their presidential candidates
The Liberal, Conservative and Libre parties chose their candidates for Honduras' 2013 presidential elections last weekend. The elections are scheduled for November.
Former first lady Xiomara Castro will represent that the peaceful, revolutionary and socialist Liberty and Refoundation party (Libre) while it looks like Mauricio Villeda will head the Liberal Party and Juan Orlando Hernandez the National Party.
An Organization of American States observer mission characterized the voting process as "normal." However, normal isn't always great if you read some entries from the Honduras Solidarity Network's Election Accompaniment Delegation.
Finally, Dana Frank of UC Santa Cruz and Pamela Spees, a lawyer at the Center for Constitutional Rights, appeared on Al Jazeera's Inside Story Americas.
