Honduras President seeks re-election

President Juan Orlando Hernandez announced Wednesday his intention to run for another term despite the opposition's condemnation.

His decision came a year after a controversial Supreme Court ruling voided a longtime constitutional ban on presidential re-election in Honduras. Opposition leaders rejected Hernandez's announcement. They dispute the validity of the ruling, arguing the court did not have the authority to modify the constitution. Salvador Nasralla, leader of the Anti-corruption Party, accused Hernandez of violating the constitution.
