Tegucigalpa, Honduras. An Inter-American Union of Electoral Bodies (UNIORE) mission observed the primary elections held March 14, 2021 in Honduras.

On the morning of March 12, the mission met with the Tribunal of Electoral Justice (TJE), the National Registry (RNP), the Financing, Transparency and Oversight Unit of the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE) and the Institute of Access to Public Information. In the afternoon, there was a meeting with representatives of the Office and Sub-Office of Planification of the National Electoral Council to learn what it had done in the areas of training, information technology and logistics. Later, the members attended a meeting on the political-social context in Honduras in light of the primary elections.  

On March 14, the members observed the opening of the polls and were then divided into four groups, each going in a different direction to visit voting centers. The mission ended by meeting to make its recommendations on what it had observed, which were included in a report that was presented to the electoral authorities.

The delegation, headed by Román Jáquez Liranzo, President of  the Central Electoral Board of the Dominican Republic, was comprised of authorities and staff of UNIORE member bodies from nine countries of the region: Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Paraguay, Puerto Rico and Uruguay. Representing the Center for Electoral Promotion and Assistance (IIHR/CAPEL), the UNIORE Executive Secretariat, were its international advisors, Tasheena Obando and Andrea Tercero.
