The time is not ripe and conditions are not mature for holding a presidential election in Honduras in November, General Secretary of the Organization of American States (OAS) Jose Miguel Insulza said Thursday.

Insulza, who was on a visit here, also demanded that all parties concerned discreetly and properly solve the ongoing Honduran political stalemate, which was touched off by the June 28coup that ousted President Manuel Zelaya.

Insulza told a press conference that the best way out of the current impasse is to respect the San Jose Agreement, which calls for Zelaya's reinstatement.

The agreement, proposed by Costa Rican President Oscar Arias, also includes a reconciliatory government, a general election and a political amnesty.

Zelaya said he accepts the agreement and is prepared to bury the hatchet, but the de facto Honduran authorities have flatly turned it down.

Zelaya, who was visiting Washington, said some OAS member countries have told him they would not recognize neither the process nor the results of Honduras' November election.
