Castro makes history as first female president in Honduras Updated: 2022-01-27 06:12:12 KST

Honderas is set to make history on Thursday, when it swears in the country's first female president in Xiomara Castro.
Castro is a self-proclaimed democratic socialist, in a nation where the left has rarely seen support, and few women hold public office.
But the president-elect was able to garner significant support, with many of the country's citizens tired of corruption and a concentration of power since 2009, when her husband and the former President Manuel Zelaya was deposed in a coup, after aligning with late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.
Castro's victory also brings an end to, over 12 years of conservative National Party rule.
She's promised significant changes in Honduras, including a constitutional overhaul, fighting corruption alongside the UN, and loosening restrictions on abortion.
