Piñate responds to the Episcopal Conference: Elections go on May 20

The president of the Economic Commission of the National Constituent Assembly, Eduardo Piñate, ruled out this Thursday any possibility of postponing the elections scheduled for next May 20, in response to the request made recently by the Venezuelan Episcopal Conference (CEV).

The religious organization, through a statement, asked to postpone the presidential election for the last quarter of this year, considering that there are no conditions for holding these elections and that there are also problems of a greater magnitude that must be addressed.

Piñate reiterated that the elections were set and the electoral schedule of the National Electoral Council is already running, and as an example of this he recalled that the electoral campaign already began on April 22.

Full respect for electoral guarantees:

The constituent was also pronounced in response to the complaint presented yesterday, Wednesday, by the presidential candidate Henri Falcón, for alleged irregularities in the campaign of the candidate by the Ample Front of the Homeland.

The Ample Front of the Homeland is willing to respect electoral guarantees. “We are not only willing, we are interested in respecting the guarantees and agreements that we reached with the candidates. We are very interested in that and it will continue to be done”.

During his participation in an interview in the Venevisión TV station, he highlighted the presence of representatives of all the organizations with political ends participating in the audits carried out until now by the CNE, as part of the guarantees subscribed by all the political actors.
