Gov't electoral campaign head: VP Maduro did not violate election rules
Jorge Rodríguez said Executive Vice-President Nicolás Maduro referred to the "love that Venezuelan people feel for their commander, brother, and father, President Hugo Chávez"
Jorge Rodríguez, the head of the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela's electoral campaign team Comando Carabobo, on Sunday said Executive Vice-President Nicolás Maduro did not violate election rules, as noted by director of the National Electoral Council (CNE) Vicente Díaz.
Earlier, Díaz claimed that the statements made by Maduro during a press conference were allegedly intended at favoring the candidates of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) taking part in Sunday election for governors.
In Rodríguez's view, Maduro only referred to "something that has to do with the human soul," which in his opinion is not associated with electioneering. He added that Maduro spoke about the "love that Venezuelan people feel for their commander, brother, and father, President Hugo Chávez."
More than USD 3.5 million of Central Bank of Venezuela (BCV) money were lost in their way to the Dominican Republic. Some Venezuelans are among the 5,000 victims of the bank's collapse. And not even the entity responsible for overseeing Venezuela's monetary policy was spared.
