Negotiators for deposed Honduran President Manuel Zelaya and de facto President Roberto Micheletti have reached an agreement to form a government of national reconciliation that could reinstate Zelaya.

The country’s congress had outlawed the vote and the supreme court had ruled it illegal. Honduras has been in turmoil since Zelaya was forced out of the country in a military-backed coup on June 28 and replaced hours later by legislative leader Micheletti. Micheletti and his supporters say Zelaya’s removal was a constitutional transfer of power and not a coup.CNN Senior Latin American Affairs Editor Rafael Romo contributed to this report.
