(Newser) – The ousted president and acting president of Honduras have agreed to reopen dialogue after the recently returned Manuel Zelaya announced he would accept the results of a November election. Zelaya and Roberto Micheletti held separate meetings with four presidential candidates yesterday and may meet face to face soon, according to one candidate. Micheletti had insisted Zelaya agree to honor the November vote as a precondition to talks.

“I see in Roberto Micheletti and Manuel Zelaya the political will to restart dialogue and sit down at the table,” said one candidate, according to Bloomberg. The UN, meanwhile, will hold an emergency session today to discuss the situation in Honduras.
