The Constitution of Honduras contains some strange things.

Sir I refer to your reports on the current situation in Honduras. Are you aware that one of the articles in the Constitution of Honduras actually states that you will “lose your conditions as a citizen if inciting, promoting or supporting continuance or the re-election of the President.” This, though sounding a bit crazy, could be indicative of that the whole issue of a re-election, towards which Manuel Zelaya was undoubtedly striving, is more of an existential issue in Honduras, and which if so would oblige us as a minimum to look much more carefully into what is really happening there.
