Venezuelan opposition presidential candidate Henrique Capriles urged president of the National Electoral Council Tibisay Lucena to close all voting stations nationwide, claiming that some people are trying to cast their vote in some polling centers that were already closed, in order to disavow people's will.

"We demand director Tibisay Lucena to order the total closure of the polling stations. Some people are trying to vote even though the voting stations are closed! "We warn the country and the world against the intention to change the will expressed by the people!" wrote the opposition presidential candidate on his Twitter account.

Earlier Capriles called upon his followers not to listen to election results disclosed by some spokesmen in the afternoon on Sunday.

"The government is fabricating a result that does not exist! Watch out! This is their specialty! We are 15 minutes from the closure of voting centers," wrote Capriles on Twitter.

"Ten minutes to close the polling centers! Do not believe in the stories that the government is telling the people. Make no mistake!" he tweeted some minutes later.

The opposition candidate would not disclose any numbers out of respect for electoral regulations.

He claimed that violent groups are trying to intimidate people who remain in the electoral centers to take part in post-election audits.
