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.
They are marching in step to the same tune. There is a coordinated effort to position the idea. The Twitter hashtag #YoSoyVictimaDeLaGuarimba (I'm a victim of "guarimbas", or protest barricades) can be read on all pro-government Twitter accounts, including those of the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), the National Assembly's Press Office, the state-run food distribution network PDVAL, state airline Conviasa, the Venezuelan embassies in foreign countries, radio stations and the huge media network responsive to the Government's interests and messages.
