Chavez-lackey Manuel Zelaya will be returned to power in Honduras.
The AFP reported:
Honduran negotiators reached agreement on Wednesday on a plan to restore President Manuel Zelaya to office and end a political crisis triggered by his ouster in a June coup.
“We have agreed in a document on point number six, which relates to the restitution of the powers of state to where they were before June 28, 2009,” Victor Meza, Zelaya’s representative, told a news conference.
Restoring the state to the situation before the coup would imply Zelaya’s return to office, something that had been opposed by Robert Micheletti, the head of the coup-backed interim government.
Micheletti and Zelaya must now ratify the agreement reached by their representatives in talks Tegucigalpa.

** Just this morning the UN’s Department of Political Affairs concluded that the removal of Zelaya from office was legal and justified.
UPDATE: According to my Honduran contacts– the Honduran news has not reported the story yet. Both sides would have to ratify the agreement before the decision is final.
