Jorge Rodríguez, former president of the Venezuelan National Electoral Council (CNE), has been disabled as an electoral observer during the upcoming second round of the Peruvian presidential election, as he was involved in an irregular situation during the first round, sources of the Peruvian Electoral Board (JNE) ratified on Wednesday.

JNE made the decision based on the fact that Rodríguez, then the top Venezuelan electoral authority, on April 9 violated the rules for international electoral observers, as he openly backed one of the Peruvian presidential candidates, namely nationalist Ollanta Humala, DPA reported.

According to TV reports, Rodríguez was always by Humala's side, behaved as his friend, offered him logistical support and even played the role of Humala's bodyguard, when the nationalist candidate was harassed by foes outside a balloting center. Therefore, for Peruvian authorities, Rodríguez violated the principle of impartiality.

Humala, who is facing former president center-leftist Alan García in a second round next June 4th, has been openly supported by Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez.

Interview


"I'm worried at seeing the opposition blending in Chávezism"

INTERVIEW Pedro Pablo Fernández faces the tough task of the children of his kind: breaking with the label according to which he is identified as "Eduardo Fernández's son." His categorical, sound style in contrast with his father's calm, smiling mood has helped him frame his own name, in spite of father and son having similar standpoints. A deputy to the Venezuelan National Assembly, an attorney-at-law majoring in economy from the University of Colorado and holder of a Master Degree in Public Policies from Georgetown University, his solitary political performance is nevertheless controversial, particularly after his speech at the parliament during the election of its board, last January.
