U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has voiced support for a clean presidential elections in Honduras in November, presidential candidates said Wednesday, Xinhua reported.
Clinton, who was here for the 39th General Assembly of the Organization of American States (OAS), met Tuesday with Elvin Santos from the Honduran ruling Liberal Party and Porfirio Lobo from the National Party, two candidates with bigger possibilities of winning the elections, to discuss issues concerning democracy and migration.
"We had a meeting to define the support that the U.S. government will give to the democracy and to our electoral process," Santos said.
Lobo said they also discussed the Honduran migrants issue, since about one million Hondurans living without documents in the U.S., but only 70,000 are protected by the Temporary Protection Status (TPS) that Washington made valid 10 years ago.
