The contest is between the US-supported president and the leftzwing challenger.

Los Angeles Times:

Tension was building in the Honduran capital as residents awaited the final results of vote counting that has dragged on for days, and supporters of a political newcomer who challenged the incumbent president clashed with security forces.

The election pitted Salvador Nasralla, a television personality with no prior political experience, against President Juan Orlando Hernandez. On Monday, Nasralla appeared to have pulled off a stunning victory, but as the days dragged on, his initial 5-percentage-point advantage melted away.
