Honduras

actually, article 239 of the Honduran constitution states:

"No citizen that has already served as head of the Executive Branch can be President or Vice-President.
Whoever violates this law or proposes its reform, as well as those that support such violation directly or indirectly, will immediately cease in their functions and will be unable to hold any public office for a period of 10 years. "

Zelaya wanted to call a constitutional convention, but does that necessarily mean he was doing it to increase his term limits? What are you people basing that claim on?

Look at the numbers: The June 28 poll was a nonbinding opinion poll to see if there should be a binding poll on November 29 2009 regarding a constitutional convention. Zelaya's term runs out in January 2010. How is he supposed to be elected president before a new constitution allowing that is written?

To put it another way- November 29, 2009, two relevant things are supposed to be determined- Who the next president is, and whether or not to change the constitution. Get it yet? Zelaya could not possibly be elected to another consecutive term; and if he refused to step down in January, THEN they could have arrested him!
