Henrique Capriles to file another action challenging the presidential vote
Capriles told TV news channel Globovisión that he would present as evidence each one of the reports received by opposition campaign team Simón Bolívar
Capriles told news TV channel Globovisión that he would present as evidence each one of the reports received by opposition campaign team Simón Bolívar.
The opposition leader underlined that the action filed in recent days aimed at challenging the National Electoral Council's decision to refrain from auditing the election results as requested by the opposition.
The leader further explained that "the illegitimacy crisis cannot be solved with violence." "We have an economic and social goal; we want a better life for our people," he added.
Referring to President Nicolás Maduro's so-called "street government," Capriles remarked that such plan does nothing to better off the country, and said, "The street government is government on television."
Let us start by looking at what appears to be a discrepancy in figures. According to official statistics, the number of Venezuelans contracting HIV/AIDS every year amounts to 11,699; and as per Ministry of Health figures 43,805 people receive free antiretroviral medications. But Jhonatan Rodríguez, the president of ONG StopVIH, claims that these figures date back to March 2012, and that they are quoted as current figures.
