The followers of the ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya on Thursday called on people to reject and boycott the general elections scheduled for Nov. 29.
The call came two days before the country's Electoral Supreme Court inaugurated the beginning of election campaigns.
The National Resistance Front, which opposes the June 28 coup that sent Zelaya into exile, said in a communique that the general elections without the restitution of the constitutional order would legalize the military violence.
The group urged people to "deny the electoral campaign, the process and the results, if Zelaya is not returned in his charge as legitimate constitutional president."
It also called on the leftist parties and independent candidates to have a coherent political position by ignoring the elections.
Rafael Alegria, leader of Honduran rural organization Via Campesina, also asked Hondurans not to vote, saying that if they vote it would be like giving legality to the coup.
The election date was decided on May 28, a month before Zelaya was deposed.
Since the coup, Zelaya has tried many occasions to reenter his country, without success.
A mission of the Organization of American States (OAS) has been to Honduras to seek quick return of Zelaya, but ended without breakthrough.
