Watch part two

Following months of political wrangling Honduras held its presidential election on Sunday.

Porfirio Lobo of the conservative National Party was declared the winner over the ruling party's Elvin Santos.

Not appearing on the ballot were the two men at the centre of Honduras' national crisis - Manuel Zelaya, the ousted president, and Roberto Micheletti, the interim president.

But with Zelaya claiming that the vote was illegitimate and some Latin American countries saying they will not recognise the outcome, Honduras may be no closer to resolving this issue.

So where does this leave the people of Honduras? One of the poorest countries in Latin America, Honduras is largely dependent on foreign aid for its survival - aid which the international community halted in the midst of the country's leadership crisis.  

On Tuesday's show we ask: What is next for Honduras?

Joining the programme from Tegucigalpa is Bertha Oliva, the founder of the Committee of Relatives of the Disappeared  in Honduras (COFADEH).

Also joining the programme are Victor Rico Frontaura, a political secretary for the Organisation of American States, and Eric Farnsworth, the vice president of the Council of the Americas.

This episode of the Riz Khan show aired on Tuesday, December 01, 2009.
