December 2, 2017 - Ottawa, Ontario - Global Affairs Canada

The Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs, today issued the following statement:

“Canada is deeply concerned about reports of escalating tension and violence since Honduras’s national elections held on November 26, 2017, including the suspension of some constitutional guarantees on December 1st.   

“Noting ongoing delays in the publication of final, definitive election results, Canada insists on the need for election authorities to complete the vote count without interference. Canada also calls for calm and urges all parties to resolve any disagreement peacefully, transparently and in line with the highest democratic and human rights standards. Participatory, transparent and credible electoral processes are cornerstones of democracy.”
