A little less than a week after taking office, the elected president of Honduras, Xiomara Castro, is already facing her first political crisis.

And it is within the future ruling party.

In a session marked by blows, boos and chaos, the parliamentarians met this Friday to vote for the provisional Board of Directors of the National Congress (2022-2026).

With 85 votes in favor, the congressmen elected the deputy Jorge Calix as President of Congress, in a decision that did not respect the pact between the Libertad y Refundación (Libre) Party, that of the future president, and Salvador Nasralla’s Salvador Party of Honduras (PSH).
