Rangel Gómez: Justice was administered with voting
Along with 15 state lawmakers, Francisco Rangel Gómez for ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) took over
Despite abstention "these people punishes treason again." In this way, Francisco Rangel Gómez celebrated his proclamation as the new governor of Bolívar state, south Venezuela, for 2013-2017.
"We are very proud that against all odds, justice was administered accordingly, based on voting, with a leeway of more than 10,000 votes and 20 revolutionary deputies," he maintained.
For his part, ex candidate for the opposition Unified Democratic Panel (MUD) Andrés Velásquez, kept on collecting vote rolls and other papers in an effort to challenge the election results. Confident of having overtaking Rangel Gómez for more than 6,000 votes, the dissenting candidate claimed that the National Electoral Council (CNE) issued irreversible trend with data pending to be transmitted.
José Vicente Rangel clearly said: "We are not conducting negotiations threatened with a gun in the head." He warned behind closed doors in the midst of the social upheaval occurred during the oil strike in 2002 and 2003. Dissenting Timoteo Zambrano answered back that no other option was available: "The thing is that otherwise, you do not negotiate."
