TEGUCIGALPA - The left-wing party of ousted Honduran president Manuel Zelaya on Tuesday named his wife as its presidential candidate in elections next year.

The new Liberty and Refoundation Party (LIBRE), which is supported by unions, farmers and women's groups, said it would nominate Xiomara Castro to run for the top job in the small central American nation, which is racked by criminal violence.

Although the former Honduran first lady is a relative novice to politics, opinion polls have shown her running first or second in voters' preferences.
