    TEGUCIGALPA, Nov. 25 (Xinhua) -- Thousands of Hondurans marched on Wednesday here to support the elections of Nov. 29, to be held under the de facto government of Roberto Micheletti.

    The march was summoned by the so called Democratic Civic Union (UCD) and the Human Rights Commissioner Ramon Custodio said the march "is a proof that we want democracy, freedom, and nobody to be above the law and the Constitution."

    UCD member, Luz Ernestina Mejia, told reporters that "this march is specially meaningful because we are about to finish the electoral process, where more than choosing our authorities we will choose our freedom."

    "Honduras has showed the world, and will continue to show that we are people who has given an example of struggle, dignity and its self-determination will be respected," Mejia said.

    Hondurans have elections on Sunday in the middle of a political crisis, which has divided the people.

    The Electoral Supreme Tribunal has established 5,260 voting centers for 4.6 million Hondurans registered. Hondurans will chose one president, three vice presidents, 128 deputies to the National Congress and 298 mayors.
