While in Brazil, the centre left candidate Dilma Rouseff won against Serra, the centre right candidate – the far right in US made considerable gains against the centrist Democrats.

A call was put in to Guadalupe Carney's local radio station, and word spread quickly through the community grapevine. In a small, bare, concrete room lit by a single candle, these residents waited in fear into the next morning - Election Day.

The Honduran coup regime and representatives of the ousted President Manuel Zelaya reached an agreement late Thursday that would pave the way for Congress to restore Zelaya to office and allow him to serve out the remaining three months of his term.
