The president of the National Electoral Council (CNE) reported that all troubles in polling centers have been promptly solved and controlled both by CNE authorities and military officers of Plan República
All the occurrences so far in polling centers "have been controlled," Tibisay Lucena, the president of the National Electoral Council, said.
"We have had some small incidents and should acknowledge that at this time, compared with other elections, they have been fully controlled. There was a situation in Maracaibo (the capital city of eastern Zulia state), which was controlled and everything that has happened has been promptly solved. This shows responsiveness not only of the CNE, but also of our Bolivarian Armed Forces and Plan República," she said.
At first she agreed that I use her real name, that she had no problems with that at all. After all, living with HIV had driven her to help others – as a workshop facilitator giving talks and conducting seminars, or as a volunteer for local AIDS Service Organizations like Acción Solidaria (Solidary Action) and Mujeres Unidas por la Salud (Women United for Health, or Musa), a support group network for HIV-positive women. But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
