In the midst of a legislative crisis, Xiomara Castro will take office this Thursday as the first female president of Honduras.
The president-elect received the visit of various leaders who will attend the inauguration, such as the Argentine Vice President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, the Taiwan Vice President William Lai, and the King of Spain, Felipe VI.
During the meeting, the leftist and the monarch had the opportunity to talk about “cooperation and strengthening the relationship between the two countries,” according to a post by Castro on Twitter.
Despite relatively quiet elections, Honduras has been mired in a dispute over who will lead the newly elected Congress, taking the spotlight off what was to be a major political shift after the president’s two terms in office. John Orlando Hernandez.
