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."
President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
