Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Honduras political crisis brews over congressional president” – below is their description.
A political crisis is brewing in Honduras after rival politicians swore in two competing presidents of the National Congress.
The supporters of both Jorge Calix and Luis Redondo celebrated as each claimed the congressional presidency.
The duelling ceremonies reflected a split in President Xiomara Castro’s Liberty and Refoundation Party (Libre). Castro had promised the position to Redondo, a member of the Honduran Salvation Party – which supported Castro in the election, but a group of dissident Libre legislators instead chose Calix, a Libre member.
