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."
Pablo Jiménez Guaricuco was summarily dismissed from his Clerk III job at the Autonomous Service of Public Registries and Notaries' Offices (Saren). He read a notice published in a newspaper on November 5 informing the public that he was no longer employed to the Saren. He was sacked despite the fact that he was taking a leave of absence from work due to a work-related accident, and that he enjoyed security of employment under the parental job-immunity privilege. Most probably, the decision was influenced by his role as a union organizer. But what did he do, besides leading protests, to deserve the sack? Well, he allegedly sent off a series of tweets that definitely hurt the sensitivity of the Saren Directorate.
