Juan Orlando Hernandez has been declared the victor of the presidential elections in Honduras on Monday after a three-week ballots count. Like the OAS, the European Union observers monitored the electoral process in Honduras.
Nasralla made the remarks while on his way to Washington, where he will meet Monday with the secretary general of the Organization of American States (OAS), Luis Almagro.
The tribunal said that Hernandez beat center-left challenger and TV star Salvador Nasralla by 1.53 percentage points, according to the official count, sparking fraud accusations and calls for renewed street protests.
"It is clear that there was fraud before, during and after the elections (.) The President of the Republic at this moment is an impostor, and the Honduran people know it", Nasralla said in a video posted on Facebook.
"The only other elections there are going to be in this country will be on the last Sunday of November, 2021, there are no others", he told reporters.
Once results started flowing in again, Nasralla's lead began narrowing and eventually disappeared.
We understand this decision triggers a five-day period, as established by Honduran law, to present any challenges to the election result. It is also important the government ensure Honduran security services respect the rights of peaceful protestors.
Honduras has been roiled by political instability and violent protests since the vote, which initial counts suggested Nasralla had won. The tally has been questioned by the two main opposition parties and a wide swathe of the diplomatic corps.
The OAS statement described irregularities, including deliberate human intrusions in the electoral computer system, pouches of votes opened or lacking votes, and "extreme" improbability around voting patterns it analyzed, making it "impossible to determine with the necessary certainty the victor".
