TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras — Interim President Roberto Micheletti says he will step down immediately, leaving his Cabinet in charge a little less than a week before the Central American country’s new leader takes office.

Micheletti says he is voluntarily withdrawing from the public spotlight “because I do not want to be an obstacle to the new government.”

Micheletti told a local television station Thursday that he will take a low profile. He said he will meet with Cabinet members who will take over day-to-day operations until President-elect Porfirio Lobo takes office next Wednesday.

Micheletti was named acting president by Congress after President Manuel Zelaya was hustled out of the country in a June 28 coup.
