Miranda state governor and ex-presidential opposition candidate Henrique Capriles Radonski posted on Tuesday on Twitter social network that the funds from the constitutional allocation for Miranda state were deposited.

"We have been informed right now that the funds of the second fortnight of April relative to the constitutional allocation have been transferred," he twitted.

On Monday, the governor lamented that all Venezuelan states, except for Miranda state, had been granted the relevant constitutional allocation. He urged the government to respect the rights of some 37,000 Miranda state workers that were hit for the late payment.

"We expect that the funds of Miranda state workers and people to be respected! This cannot happen again!" he warned the government.

Capriles underlined that people cannot be held liable for the political impasse between the Venezuelan government and dissenters as a result of the requested audit of the votes cast on the presidential election of last April 14.
