Apparently taking a lesson from SC Governor Mark Sanford, Honduras’ interim leader Roberto Micheletti is claiming that “no one can make me resign.”
Last week, Honduras President Manuel Zelaya was ousted in a coup. Micheletti, a member of the same party as Zelaya, was then sworn in as president by the National Congress.
Honduras’ interim leader warned that the only way his predecessor will return to office is through a foreign invasion, even as the hemisphere’s leaders gave him 72 hours to hand over the presidency.
Micheletti said in an interview with The Associated Press late Tuesday that “no one can make me resign,” defying the United Nations, the OAS, the Obama administration and other leaders that have condemned the military coup that overthrew Zelaya.
Like l’Affaire Sanford, this too appears fated to end poorly.
