Opposition leader: We are not satisfied with the election results
Executive secretary of opposition Unified Democratic Panel (MUD) Ramón Guillermo Aveledo said the results of the gubernatorial vote held on Sunday show that "no one surrenders." He noted that the opposition campaign was conducted under "very difficult circumstances"
Aveledo, however, congratulated the governors reelected in the states of Miranda, Henrique Capriles; Lara, Henri Falcón, and Amazonas, Liborio Guarulla.
Aveledo said the results of the election of state governors show that "no one surrenders." He noted that the opposition campaign was conducted under "very difficult circumstances."
He stressed that "difficult political and economic times are coming," and reiterated that the MUD will "continue to serve the country."
