Proposal of Micheletti
about the recognition of the powers of the state
To achieve national reconciliation and strengthen democracy we recognize the legitimacy of the powers constituted on the 28th of June, 2009: Legislative, Judicial, and the Election Court as having been formed according to articles 202, 205 number 9 and 11, of the constitution of the Republic. As for the pretence of citizen Jose Manuel Zelaya Rosales to return to the Presidency of the Republic, we condition our accord on the institutional criteria of the Supreme Court, as the entity charged constitutionally with the application of the law.
The foregoing implies that the opinion of the Judicial Power, will be applicable and considered obligatory by the parties involved in this dialogue.
For this proposition, we respectfully formulate a request to the Judicial power asking them to attend to the terms of the present accord.
