The municipal election campaign is "the most outrageous campaign Venezuela ever had in many years; I'd dare say in Venezuelan history," said Vicente Díaz, a member of the board of the National Electoral Council (CNE).

According to Díaz, the current campaign is marked by "institutionalization of the government advantageous position" and public servants' engagement in electioneering "on behalf of political candidates without stepping down, as appropriate."

"We have seen the president of the Republic on obligatory simultaneous broadcast, attacking, stigmatizing, questioning, lambasting opposition candidates and leaders," he lamented.

Díaz regretted that state-owned TV channel Venezolana de Televisión (VTV) restlessly airs spots "degrading opposition candidates."
