Castro Set to Be First Woman President of Honduras after Victory

Castro Set to Be First Woman President of Honduras after Victory

The Index Today

In Sunday’s presidential election, opposition leader Xiomara Castro won by a landslide vote. With the new win, the party will gain back power which was lost when her husband was ousted a decade ago.
Xiomara Castro is the wife of former president Manuel Zelaya and has gained a 20-point lead over opponent Nasry Asfura who is the capital’s mayor. This election could be the first in the country’s history which could give the public its first female president.

The presidential elections come after the nation was rocked with corruption scandals and political unrest. Gangland violence and an underperforming economy have pushed many local residents to leave in search of a better future. Xiomara Castro is changing the face of the political scene in Honduras and claims to be a democratic socialist.

Castro said to her supporters, “We have turned back authoritarianism. We’re going to form a government of reconciliation, a government of peace and justice.” On the other hand, her critics consider her a threat and a left-wing radical. However, her role could help many private businesses and has gained much support from businessmen.
