World News1: Castro makes history as first female president in Honduras Updated: 2022-01-27 05:37:30 KST

For a look at what's going on around the world, we have Lee Seung-jae joining us from the newsroom. Good morning.

Good morning.

Taking a look at our top story this morning, Honduras is set to make history on Thursday, when it swears in the country's first female president.

Certainly a historic moment for the Central American nation, as Xiomara Castro will be sworn in as the country's first female president on Thursday.
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.
