Honduras' electoral authority said on Monday it would review polling booth tallies from last month's presidential election after the second-place leftist candidate called the result fraudulent.
The authority said it would go over the vote tallies of more than 16,000 polling booths, but it stopped short of announcing a full vote recount that runner-up Xiomara Castro, the wife of ousted former leader Manuel Zelaya, had called for.
The ruling National Party's Juan Hernandez, who is head of Congress, won last week's election with 36.8 percent of the votes, according to the country's election tribunal. He has vowed to curb the drug violence that has given Honduras the world's highest murder rate. (AP)
