ELECTION 2013

Henrique Capriles sets deadline for authorities to start election audit

Opposition leader Henrique Capriles said that "the country should remember that the people who are trying to cause division (among Venezuelans) are the same people who months ago lied about the president's (Hugo Chávez) health. They are the same people who said I was going to withdraw from the presidential race and the same people who said they would not implement currency devaluation"

Former presidential candidate Henrique Capriles said late on Wednesday that the opposition coalition will wait until Thursday for the National Electoral Council to start the audit on the presidential election held on April 14.

"They said it (the election audit) would start this week. Tomorrow is Thursday. We will not let them make fun of us," he said. "If there is no answer, we will announce to the country the actions we will take next," he added.

During a press conference at the headquarters of the presidential campaign team Simón Bolívar, in Caracas, Capriles said the opposition would not accept a non-comprehensive audit.

"We are not afraid of your threats. The truth will see the light. You can not twist the truth," said Capriles. "The truth is that you stole the election," he added.

Capriles said that "the country should remember that the people who are trying to cause division (among Venezuelans) are the same people who months ago lied about the president's (Hugo Chávez) health. They are the same people who said I was going to withdraw from the presidential race and the same people who said they would not implement currency devaluation."
