In Venezuela, International Observers for Municipal Elections

International observers arrived in Venezuela Wednesday to be accredited by the National Electoral Council (CNE) for the municipal elections to be held next Sunday to elect the mayors of 335 mayorships.

Among the group of observers are the specialists of the Council of Electoral Experts of Latin America (Ceela), constituted by former presidents and magistrates of electoral bodies of Latin America, who already enjoy recognition in the validation of the majority of the 22 elections held in the country in the last 18 years.

The Regulation of the Organic Law on the General Electoral System states in article 471 that both national and international observation are intended to witness, in an impartial and independent manner, the transparent development of electoral processes.

On the other hand, the Venezuelan Minister for Defense, Vladimir Padrino, confirmed the deployment of 115,000 troops to ensure peace during the elections of the mayors of the country and the new governor of the state of Zulia.

As part of the Republic Plan, 140.000 members of citizen security bodies will also participate, which will be placed under the command of the Operational Strategic Command of the Bolivarian National Armed Force, said Padrino from El Paseo los Próceres, in Caracas.

Before the military assembled there, the minister ratified the commitment with the defense of the right to suffrage and assured that elections ‘are a genuine means to strengthen democracy’.
