On Tuesday, Micheletti urged citizens to vote in November elections, vowing that the vote for a new president will show the world democracy thrives in Honduras despite the coup.
Campaigning began this week amid warnings from many Latin American countries that they will not recognise the outcome of any election until Zelaya is restored to power.
"We will be watched by many countries in the world," Micheletti said in a televised address.
"This process will serve to categorically show that we appreciate democracy, that we are a people who want to live in harmony.''
He also said the elections "are the only final and definitive solution to the political crisis".
Micheletti continues to maintain that Zelaya was legally removed from office by Congress for violating a Supreme Court order to drop efforts to change the constitution.
