    Honduras is gearing up for elections on Sunday, and public safety is one of the central issues of the campaign.

    While the murder rate has dropped, Honduras remains one of the most dangerous countries in the world.

    Opinion polls say president and candidate Juan Orlando Hernandez is leading.

    Hernandez is the first president in Honduras's recent history to run for re-election, the Supreme Court lifted a Constitutional ban on presidents serving more than one term, paving the way for Hernandez.
