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."
Around 1.5 million Venezuelans have decided to emigrate in search of a better future for their families. The figure accounts to between 4% and 6% of the overall population. Approximately 88% of these expatriates have made up their mind to emigrate over the last 15 years.
