NasrallaHonduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez declared himself the winner of elections before official results were announced – and his top rival did the same.

“I’m very content, happy, because I’ve been seeing… a huge number of exit polls and real-time processing of the ballots and the result is more than clear: we won this election,” Hernandez told a crowd that cheered him in the capital.

Shortly after his announcement, Salvador Nasralla of the leftist Alliance Against the Dictatorship coalition also proclaimed himself to be the winner.
