Venezuelan Opposition Claims Its Candidate Won Regional Election in Bolivar

CARACAS – The Venezuelan opposition coalition Democratic Unity Roundtable (MUD) called on Tuesday on the National Electoral Council (CNE) to proclaim its candidate as the winner in the gubernatorial elections in the southern state of Bolivar, claiming that the counted votes indicated so.

The MUD said in a statement that it “demands that the CNE respect the will of the people of the Bolivar State as well as the 100 percent of the counted votes that indicate, without any doubt, that the winning candidate for governorship is Andres Velasquez,” from The Cause R party.

The coalition said that it has 100 percent of the votes counted in that state, which serves as the basis to urge that the CNE “comply with what is established in the law, and proclaim Velasquez as the new governor” of Bolivar.

Two days have passed after Sunday’s regional elections, but the official results of Bolivar state have not been revealed, and dozens of opposition members have been protesting since Monday at the CNE regional headquarters to demand the vote audit as well as the proclamation of its candidates as the new governor.

The ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) and the opposition on Sunday vied for the country’s 23 governorates, 17 of which went to the hand of the PSUV and five to the opposition.

However, the MUD does not recognize this result and demanded that the entire process be audited.
