The President of the National Electoral Council (CNE), Tibisay Lucena, said on Tuesday that elections for Governors and regional legislative councils will be held on December 10 this year.

She stressed that the call is made because the process of validation of political organizations, in which the electoral body has been working – in compliance with the ruling since October of the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court of Justice – has almost ended.

In that sense, she convened a meeting for Thursday at three in the afternoon, to approve the schedules for the election of the National Constituent Assembly and to set the date for the end of July, as well as the schedule of the regional elections already mentioned.

“In this way the political forces of the country will be able to mobilize their militants in terms of electoral options, and contribute to the consolidation of peace and the democratic game. We believe that the whole nation wants to overcome this terrible violent episode, which harasses and damages the will of Venezuelans to live in harmony and understanding of differences”, she emphasized.
