Members of the dissenting panel said that they are leading the polls for the seats whose results have not been announced
A leader of the Democratic Unified Panel (MUD), an opposition alliance which brings together the political organizations that oppose the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), said the MUD secured 52 percent of the popular vote in Sunday's legislative election.
"It is very important to notice that the National Electoral Council (CNE), that has been so careful to provide the results of the Latin American Parliament, has avoided providing a crucial figure. They know and we know that the Democratic Unified Panel obtained 52 percent of national popular vote in the National Assembly election, said Ramón Guillermo Aveledo, the opposition alliance's spokesman from the headquarters of the MUD.
The story could have been different. On April 12, 2014, university students led a march to the Attorney General Office in order to submit concrete requests in regards to security and to demand the release of a group of youngsters detained in Táchira state.
