The president of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, congratulated this Sunday, June 27, the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), of which he is the leader, for the day of nomination of pre-candidates for the primary elections for the regional and local elections in November .
The Venezuelan president had called on the PSUV militants to nominate these candidates through a process of assemblies of the more than 14,000 grassroots organizations of the party throughout the country. According Mature, this event took place in a “transparent way” and “without any particular incident.”
“The method that has been used (for the day) is extraordinary,” said the president. Data keep coming in, I’m seeing it right now. Approximately 30% has been processed so far. We aspire at dawn to reach 80% and, tomorrow morning, to have 100% ”, he promised before issuing an ironic comment on the second round between Pedro Castillo and Keiko Fujimori.
“So Venezuela will give the result faster than the elections in Peru, which is three weeks old and has not yet proclaimed president. Tomorrow we are going to have all the candidates nominated, selected by the people at the grassroots, in their communities, by ordinary people, ”said Nicolás Maduro.
He added that, “in no way”, allowed “abuse of power” or “waste” of the candidates and assured that “whoever does it will be eliminated.” In addition, he announced the primary elections open for next August 8.
Elections in Venezuela
Venezuela will hold elections on November 21 to elect the governors of the 23 states, the mayors of the 335 municipalities and the members of the country’s local and regional legislative councils.
The last two electoral processes in Venezuela have been questioned by the international community and a good part of the Venezuelan opposition, considering that they have not had the necessary elements to guarantee that they are democratic elections.
The main allegations are due to the political disqualifications of known opponents or the intervention ordered by the Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ) of the directives of the largest parties that oppose the Government.
