Representatives of the opposition fraction at the Venezuelan National Assembly (AN) on Wednesday handed over a paper to the National Electoral Council (CNE) whereby better conditions for national voting are requested.

Deputies María Corina Machado and Andrés Velásquez pursue a meeting with the CNE board of director to discuss the planned changes in national polls.

"Vote is an expression of people's sovereignty and in default of people's voting there is no national sovereignty; for this reason, we appeared here in advocacy of it. Our obligation is not resting until manage to remove all the obstacles to the full exercise of sovereignty," Machado upheld.

"As set forth in the national Constitution, elections should be free, universal, direct and secret. For elections to be democratic, there is the need to comply with a number of principles that are missing in the country elections," she added.

Living with HIV/AIDS (I)

Let us start by looking at what appears to be a discrepancy in figures. According to official statistics, the number of Venezuelans contracting HIV/AIDS every year amounts to 11,699; and as per Ministry of Health figures 43,805 people receive free antiretroviral medications.  But Jhonatan Rodríguez, the president of ONG StopVIH, claims that these figures date back to March 2012, and that they are quoted as current figures.
