The early results had given left-wing candidate Xiomara Castro a wide advantage over Nasry Asfura.

Nasry Asfura, candidate for the presidency of Honduras by the ruling National Party, acknowledged on Tuesday the defeat in the presidential elections last Sunday.

The early results had given left-wing candidate Xiomara Castro a wide lead over Asfura, but the vote count slowed Sunday night, creating uncertainty.

The uncertainty began to clear when, in a statement, the National Party said it will work with the incoming government to build “a better Honduras”.

For their part, local media published photos of the two candidates chatting amicably, announcing that Nasry Asfura had congratulated Castro personally.
