With 70 percent of ballots counted in the Honduran presidential election, opposition candidate Salvador Nasralla maintains a five point lead over President Juan Orlando Hernandez, and is set to win, an election official said on Monday.

“The technical experts here say that it’s irreversible,” said Marcos Ramiro Lobo, one of four election tribunal magistrates. “(Nasralla) is practically the winner.”

Speaking to Reuters, Lobo said Nasralla had kept up a five point advantage over the incumbent Hernandez, who had been widely expected to win before the election took place.

    Salvador Alejandro César Nasralla Salum was born in Tegucigalpa, Honduras – the parents are both of Palestinian descent, but that wasn’t an obstacle for him to become what he is now.

    In Lebanon refuge camps you will find many born in Lebanon with parents that are of Palestinian decent, why are they doing nothing else than waiting for humanitarian aid from UNRWA?

      Lebanon is too small to absorb so many refugees , be it from Palestine , Syria or many other countries .
      Like we want the Syrians to go back home we also want the Palestinians to go back to their home in occupied Palestine. If we make their life too comfortable in Lebanon then they wouldn’t have any incentive to leave.
      The Palestinians are smart and I am not surprised to read about Nasrallah or Nazzal’s successes. Israel could prosper too if it leaves the West Bank alone and allow the Palestinians to live in peace

Don’t feel bad , I may know less about Ukraine and Russia , your real home. Since you are new to the region , I suggest you spend some time learning about this part of the world. The more you know the better person you become.
