MEXICO CITY (Sputnik) — Ebal Diaz, the secretary of the nation’s council of ministers, said the suspension would come into force at 11 p.m. (5:00GMT Saturday), according to the La Pensa newspaper. The curfew will be in effect for ten days from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m.
The announcement of the final results from last Sunday's poll has been delayed amid opposition allegations of fraud and calls for vote recount.
Delays and fraud accusations have led to protests across the country, with one man shot dead in La Ceiba. Ten protesters were injured in the national capital of Tegucigalpa, while 12 police officers were hurt throughout Honduras.
The Honduran military called for calm on Friday evening after demonstrations escalated into violence and looting. At least a hundred trouble-makers were detained for clashing with police and blocking highways.
