César Ham Politician
César David Adolfo Ham Peña (born July 23, 1973) is a Honduran politician. He is a leader of the socialist Democratic Unification Party and a member of Parliament. He was the presidential candidate of his party for the 2009 elections in which he gained less than 2% of the votes. He supported President Manuel Zelaya's initiative to form a convention for reforming the Constitution, and was one of the main organizers of the controversial non-binding poll that was scheduled for June 28, 2009, but never took place because Zelaya was ousted from office that day in a coup d'état. On September 16, 2009 he was the sole dissenter at a meeting of Honduran presidential candidates with the Costa Rican President Oscar Arias when he was the only candidate to support the San José Agreement's demand for the reinstatement of Manuel Zelaya.

Democratic Unification Party
The Democratic Unification Party is a left-wing political party in Honduras. PUD was founded on 29 September 1992 by the merger of four leftist clandestine or semiclandestine political parties, in the context of the changed political situation in Central America at that period, following the end of the Cold War. The PUD was legally recognised in 1993/4 and has fought various elections since 1997, gaining around 1-3% of the vote.
