Leaders from the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) member states affirmed on Monday that they would recognize no election results in Honduras while the interim government was still in power.

The leaders once again demanded the immediate restoration of ousted President Manuel Zelaya at the Third UNASUR Summit in Quito, the capital of Ecuador.

Chilean President Michelle Bachelet reaffirmed her stance against the coup together with 12 other leaders and called for Zelaya's immediate and unconditional return to power.

Ecuador's President Rafael Correa, also UNASUR's new pro tempore president, said in reference to the post-coup Honduran regime that UNASUR would not recognize any interim government.

Zelaya was ousted in late June, hours before a planned referendum in Honduras asking citizens if they would support an assembly to review the constitution alongside November's presidential elections. Roberto Micheletti, former head of the Honduran parliament, was later named interim president.
