One month before elections in Honduras

Several good posts on the upcoming elections in Honduras.

Hermano Juancito writes about the breakdown of the two-party system

RAJ talks about the newest poll that has the Partido Nacional's Juan Orlando Hernández ahead of Xiomara Castro de Zelaya for the first time. I'm not sure that we can say anything more than the race is a toss up right now and that Hernández has all the advantages of an incumbent and more.

Seth Robbins takes a look at Honduras vote: More parties, new politics? with the Christian Science Monitor. Seth looks at some of the challenges facing the new Libre party.

Finally, Alex Main looks at the political violence leading up to this year's elections. People affiliated with a number of the political parties have been killed since mid-2012. However, the majority of those killed were linked to the Libre party.
