On the Recognition of the Powers of the State
We respectfully solicit the National Congress that, heading the opinions of the pertinent parts, including the Supreme Court, if you think it necessary, it give a decision corresponding to this point of the San Jose Accord, which says:
"6 On The Return of the Powers to their state prior to June 28.
To achieve reconciliation and strengthen democracy we ask the National Congress that, to effect the recovery of the integration and conformation of the Powers constituted on 28 June 2009, return the situation of the Executive Power, the Legislative Poer, the Judicial Power, and the Election Court to their state prior to 28 June, because they were formed following the articles 202, 205 paragraphs 9 and 11, and 236 of the constitution of the Republic of Honduras. The previous implies the return of José Manuel Zelaya Rosales to the Presidency of the Republic until the conclusion of his actual governing period, 27 January, 2010."
