First female Honduras president – level 2

03-12-2021 07:00

The first results showed that Xiomara Castro would become the first female president of Honduras. It seemed that the results would be close, but Castro won against Nasry Asfura, the leader of the National Party.

The 62-year-old woman was the leader of the Libre Party. She promised to tax rich people and to fight corruption. She also said that she wanted to change the political system in the country. The National Party ruled in Honduras for 12 years, and there were many events connected to organized crime and drugs.

Castro’s supporters celebrated in the capital city of Tegucigalpa. They held red flags, and they danced in the streets.

Difficult words: party (a political group), corruption (illegal activities usually by powerful people), organized crime (criminal activity of large groups of people).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
