TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras – Honduras President Juan Orlando Hernandez is calling on the country's leaders to forge an accord to bring peace to the divided country following his disputed re-election.
Hernandez says the people have expressed their will at the ballot box, but it is not time for celebrations.
Hernandez spoke in a televised address Tuesday, two days after the country's electoral court declared him the winner of the Nov. 26 election.
Electoral officials have denied challenger Salvador Nasralla's petition to annul the vote because of irregularities. He's in Washington making his case to U.S. officials and the Organization of American States.
The OAS has said it is not certain about the election result and recommends new elections.
Honduras Vice President Ricardo Alvarez made clear on Monday there would be no do-over.
