ELECTION 2013 | Interview with Henrique Capriles Radonski

"Stance of some countries about audit is in defense of status quo"

"Our complaints are focused on the inconsistencies existing between the tally sheets and the number of ballots, violence in polling centers, assisted votes, proselytism at polling centers, people voting two or three times...," Venezuelan opposition leader Henrique Capriles told Argentinean newspaper La Nación in an interview

Venezuelan opposition leader Henrique Capriles rejected the meddling of Argentinean President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner in Venezuelan affairs and stated that she interferes in domestic affairs as "if she were part of the Chavista government." 

Capriles added that he is troubled by the stance "some presidents" have taken regarding a requested audit on the election results, according to which ruling party candidate Nicolás Maduro, the successor of late Hugo Chávez, won the presidential vote held on April 14, DPA informed. 

"I am not uncomfortable with the stance of the countries, but with that of some presidents crossing the line and making statements about Venezuela. The truth is that there are some countries defending the status quo. Remember that a change in Venezuela implies a change in Latin America because oil would stop being a source of loyalty in the region," Capriles stated during an interview published by Argentinean daily newspaper La Nación.

The opposition leader urged the international community "not to divert attention from the audit, to be alert to any events in Venezuela, and not to turn the page because there is still a way to go."

"Our complaints are focused on the inconsistencies existing between the tally sheets and the number of ballots, violence in polling centers, assisted votes, proselytism at polling centers, people voting two or three times...," he said referring to the vote audit.
