“Papi a la Orden,” as his supporters call him, will seek the presidency of Honduras again after participating in the 2021 general election, in which he lost to current President Xiomara Castro.
“Papi a la Orden,” as his supporters call him, will once again seek the presidency of Honduras.
Asfura took part in the 2021 general election, where he was defeated by current President Xiomara Castro.
“Tito” Asfura is clearly the candidate with the greatest voter strength within the National Party in this new electoral process.
As announced by several MPs close to the former president, Asfura’s political tour will begin this Saturday.
However, they did not provide any information about the places that “Papi a la Orden” will visit.
In addition to Asfura, MP Jorge Zelaya and the former president of the Central Bank of Honduras (BCH), Wilfredo Cerrato, have already made their preliminary candidacies official in the national party.
In the last few hours, MP Erasmo Portillo published a photo in which he appears with Nasry Asfura.
“Something big is coming,” the congressman posted after meeting “Papi a la Orden.”
“Let’s make history! “Will you join this project?” wrote Congressman Portillo in a release.
The announcement of Asfura’s political trip comes at a time when there are serious questions about President Xiomara Castro’s government.
Asfura, who has served as mayor of the Central District with good success in the past, would be the strongest political rival the ruling party would face in the next general election in November 2025.
But analysts point out that political attrition and allegations against the National Party of corruption and drug trafficking will continue to take their toll on the historic conservative political entity in its quest to regain power.
In September 2024, according to the schedule of the National Electoral Council (CNE), a new process for elections will officially begin, but for several months the political fever has begun to manifest itself more and more in the main opposition parties: National Party, Liberal and Salvadoran of Honduras.
