International viewers unable to attest to clean vote in Venezuela
International guests said that in the absence of a vote recount, Nicolás Maduro's legitimacy is at stake
In this sense, international guests supported the petition of opposition candidate Henrique Capriles Radonski for a thorough and objective recount of "each tally sheet, each polling station, and each voters' roll."
Palomares added that they were not implying that an electoral fraud took place. Rather, their request was intended at using a method provided for under the international electoral law for the real data gathered on April 14 to mirror who was elected as the new Venezuelan president.
International guests said that in the absence of a vote recount, Nicolás Maduro's legitimacy is at stake.
President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
