Congress Stalls

The executive council of Congress decided today to ask the Supreme Court about the possibility of restoring Zelaya to the Presidency. The court's opinion is not binding on Congress, and it has previously said the coup against Zelaya was legal. Telecinco, a Spanish TV station and website also reports that the Procuraduria has also been asked for an opinion. In addition, La Tribuna reports that the Fiscalia has been asked for an opinion. No deadline was set for the reports.

José Miguel Insulza, Secretary General of the OAS, urged Congress to stop the rhetoric and install a government of national unity which restores the legitimate President of Honduras, Manuel Zelaya. Insulza noted that he has called a general meeting of the OAS to remove sanctions and reincorporate Honduras for November 16, and that they'd like to hold it in Tegucigalpa, but for that to happen, they need to comply with the accord.
