Honduras Congress rejects Zelaya’s reinstatement

A majority in the Honduran Congress have voted against reinstating deposed President Manuel Zelaya and allowing him to finish out his term of office.

A simple majority of 65 lawmakers in the 128-member body voted against Zelaya’s return to the presidency shortly before 730 pm (0130 GMT) on Wednesday after more than six hours of debate.

At that point, only nine lawmakers had voted for Zelaya’s return to office.
