Juan Orlando Hernández, the conservative candidate, has been officially confirmed as the new president of Honduras by the Tribunal Supreme Electorate. Thus far, the streets have been quiet, although the closest contender, Xiomara Castro Zelaya, pledges to fight the results. The streets in the capital continue to have a heavy security presence. The nation's president must confront problems plaguing the country such as murder, unemployment, gangs, and drug trafficking.
