Constitutional President of Honduras Manuel Zelaya is now leading the FRNP, organized for the "refoundation of the country."
The constitutional President of Honduras, Manuel Zelaya, ousted by the coup d’état was named Coordinator General of the Executive Committee of the National Popular Resistance Front (FRNP), according to the “Resistance” radio program. The resolution was agreed on during the First Assembly, composed of 56 delegates, officers and alternates in Tocoa, Department of Colon. Zelaya was named as Coordinator without a substitute and only Zelaya can occupy the position.
The initiative was proposed by the National Popular Resistance Front of San Pedro Sula and seconded by Attorney Posadas, of the Resistance from the Department of El Paraiso; Edgardo Casaña representing the Federacíon of Teachers Organizations of Honduras (FOMH) issued supporting statements; and a unanimous decision was reached by the entire assembly of delegates.
The decision has been communicated to President Zelaya and a response is expected in the next hours. The representatives also decided to expand the composition of the Executive Committee from 7 to 15 members, two representatives from each organization that had not been included.
