The World

May 22, 1985

Honduran leaders reached an agreement designed to resolve a power struggle between President Roberto Suazo Cordova and Congress over control of the nomination of presidential candidates. Under the agreement, the party getting the most total votes for all its candidates wins the presidency; the candidate getting the most votes within that party takes the office. The Supreme Court, which Suazo and Congress attempted to manipulate in the struggle, will be dissolved and a new court named. And Supreme Court Justice Ramon Valladares Soto is to be released from jail. Appointed by Congress, he was arrested on treason charges.
